These are: Beech Park Nursing Home, Kildare Town and Larchfield Park Nursing Home, Naas.

The Health Information and Quality Authority has released inspection reports on two Kildare nursing homes.

These are: Beech Park Nursing Home, Kildare Town and  Larchfield Park Nursing Home, Naas.

The assessment at Beech Park was unannounced, and conducted on June 17th.

It was inspection on 19 standards, and was compliant on 12, and substantially so on 3.

The nursing home was not compliant on management and governance and, its premises, infection control and fire precautions.

HIQA says "The inspectors saw that each resident's care was guided and provided as residents' preferred. This person-centred approach had a positive impact on residents' satisfaction regarding their feelings of wellbeing in the centre. Residents told the inspectors that staff were knowledgeable regarding their care needs. "

Beech Park Nursing Home has since submitted compliance and action plans to HIQA.

Meanwhile, an inspection was carried out at Larchfield Park in Naas on June 14th.

It was an unannounced assessment, and the facility was found to be compliant on all standards on which it was assessed.

HIQA's inspector said "Residents were overwhelmingly positive about the staff in the centre.
Residents described the staff as ‘fantastic, amazing, and brilliant’ and stated they could not do enough for them and often went ‘above and beyond’ their role.  Residents described the care and service as ‘top class’ and stated all of the staff and the management team were always available and always kind."
