The relationship between staff and residents at a local Roscommon care home is being praised by HIQA inspectors.
An unannounced inspection at Costello's Nursing Home in Ballyleague took place in March.
The centre provides accommodation for up to 28 residents with needs ranging from low dependency to maximum dependency nursing care, with 27 on site on the day of inspection.
HIQA staff noted that it was evident staff knew residents' personal preferences and treated them with dignity and respect at every opportunity.
Outstanding fire safety works highlighted in a previous 2021 inspection were largely resolved according to HIQA personnel, with remaining works delayed as a result of Covid Pandemic.
According to management, these remaining issues have been addressed in the last 3 months.
Issues surrounding redecoration of the premises also fell victim to Covid delays, with these works also tackled over the last number of months.
Minor problems in regard to hand hygiene sinks, staffing, management and notification of incidents have also been resolved according to the provider.
In a statement to Shannonside FM news today, Costello's Nursing Home state paid tribute to their staff and the relationship they've built with residents.
Management say they are delighted that inspectors highlighted that residents were content and comfortable in a clean environment.
