Covid Update: Only one Scottish care home found with infection control problems

Home Farm Care Home, Home Farm Road, Portree, Highland IV51 9LX

In the last four weeks, 138 health and care units reports were published by the Care Inspectorate for Scotland.

The report for the one ‘unsatisfactory‘ case, when re-inspected on 13th May 2020, the well-known Portree care home for the elderly run by HC-One, is most disturbing. The words ‘infection control‘ appear 12 times and this section about ‘redeployed‘ or agency staff is astonishing:

We considered there was a real risk of redeployed staff becoming infected, given the unsatisfactory infection control arrangements. Three redeployed HC-One staff chose not to have a COVID-19 test despite being requested to do so by public health. This decision unnecessarily increased the risk of the infection spreading.

The four units rated ‘weak‘ are all day care centres for children and only one of those had infection control problems.

One thought on “Covid Update: Only one Scottish care home found with infection control problems”

  1. We know that the BritNat media won’t be asking any questions of HC-One, as with their Tory owners they are beyond the law, any law. When there is no law for some, it’s a vigilante mafia cabal at the helm. That’s what we have now.
