All rooms are ensuite.

My family member has her own toilet in her bedroom.

Ensuites need to be bigger as they do not fit a bath trolley with 2 staff in same, so once a service user requires assistive equipment such as a bath trolley, their personal hygiene needs are met in the bigger bathrooms (shared).

Key Findings

Lack of space in the ensuite bathrooms to allow for a person in a wheelchair or someone who uses a mobility aid to move around.

Single rooms with ensuites are more successful in infection control.


All bathrooms/toilet facilities should be accessible, having sufficient space to allow for wheelchair/rollator use or for a carer to attend the person using it.

All bathroom/toilet facilities should be well-ventilated, either by way of an external window or by a fan.

Resident bedrooms should have their own individual toilet, wherever possible.
