Re: HIQA Inspection at Tus Nua, OSV0008146

Community Healthcare Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, MonaghanSligo

Tus Nua is a new residential facility located in a rural area close to Donegal Town.

This centre provides residential care and support for four adults with an intellectual disability. The centre comprises of a kitchen/dining area where residents can prepare and enjoy meals and snacks and a separate sitting room where residents can relax, watch TV, or listen to music. There is a separate utility room with laundry facilities.  Each resident has their own room, all of which have en-suite facilities. Residents at Tus Nua are supported by a team of Care staff and a Clinical Nurse Manager 2.

The centre was inspected on January 11th 2024 and the report was published on the HIQA website on April 4th 2024.

Thirteen regulations were inspected, and all were found to be fully compliant with standards. 

It was noted by the HIQA inspector on the day of inspection that “staff were observed interacting with residents in a friendly and respectful way. Staff were quick to respond when residents asked for help. Throughout the day, it was noted that staff chatted with residents in a comfortable manner and, at times, were heard laughing together at a shared joke. Staff were very knowledgeable on the needs and preferences of residents”.

The HSE will continue to work to ensure that high quality services are delivered and maintained within Tus Nua.
