Standards at a Johnstone care home that was slammed after inspectors found dirty mattresses and stained furniture have finally been brought up to scratch, according to a new report.

The Care Inspectorate gave a scathing review of Ranfurly Care Home back in April as the facility was slapped with a “weak” grading.

Alongside unclean mattresses and furniture, food was found stuffed down the side of soft furnishings and not all staff had completed the necessary training on limiting the spread of Covid.

A second check-up was carried out by the watchdog in May, with some improvements noted in infection prevention and control.

But bosses were told the cleanliness of mattresses and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) were still not acceptable.

The latest report laid before the Scottish Parliament following a third inspection suggests things are now in order.

The Quarrelton Road home has been given an “adequate” grading for its staffing, infection prevention and control and people’s health and wellbeing.

In their latest report, inspectors stated: “We found further improvements to infection prevention and control practice, with the environment found to be clean and fresh.

“We observed improvement in the cleaning of mattress covers and staff’s use of PPE. The management team had implemented an improved system to observe staff practice.

“Visiting arrangements had improved, with the Scottish Government’s Open with Care guidance being implemented to allow visits in bedrooms. We observed people receiving visits both inside and outside during our inspection.

“The staff worked well together and we observed warm and caring interactions between staff and residents.

“We looked at the service improvement plan which was now in place. While the service had started to involve others in this process, the quality of the improvement plan could be further developed.”

“Anticipatory care plans were in place for each person in the service. Plans sampled during the visit contained appropriate information in relation to people experiencing care.”

The home looks after a maximum of 62 older people and was taken over by Anavo Group this year after previous owners Silverline Care got into financial difficulties and called in administrators.
