Killure Bridge Nursing Home has received a glowing report from the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) following a recent unannounced inspection. The nursing home was found to be fully compliant with all the regulations of the Health Act 2007, a feat which very few nursing homes manage to achieve.

“We are delighted with the report” said Mary Burke, Director of Care in Killure Bridge. “We aim to provide a very high standard of care to ensure our residents have a good quality of life in the nursing home and it was great to see that reflected in the report. We’ve always had a good compliance history with HIQA and are delighted to see that continued. The excellent report is testament to the hard work and dedication of all the team.”

According to the HIQA inspectors, Killure Bridge was ‘a very nice place to live – homely and well decorated throughout’. They found the staff to be ‘excellent, friendly, courteous and understanding’. They were also very complimentary of management, citing their ‘clear commitment to quality person centred care’.

With regards COVID-19, the report found that the nursing home was very clean, that best practice guidelines were being followed and that infection control measures were of a high standard. Communication during the pandemic was considered excellent and it was clear everyone was adhering to correct procedures.

The inspectors spent a full day in Killure Bridge as part of an unannounced visit. As well as interviewing management and staff, they also spoke to numerous residents and relatives to get a full picture. The report which has just been published can be read in full on the HIQA website –
