Steeton nursing home achieves platinum vaccination status

Currergate Nursing Home has been awarded the highest award possible by Bradford Council's department of health and wellbeing, with 100% of staff having had a Covid-19 vaccination.

The facility in Steeton, owned by Czajka Care Group also received a message of thanks from the Covid Support Team at the council.

The nursing home says no residents have tested positive for Covid-19 throughout the pandemic.

Managing Director of Czajka Care Group, Konrad Czajka, said: “There has been a lot of discussion in the industry and in the media about making vaccinations mandatory for those working in care and nursing homes, but people do currently have the right to choose to be vaccinated or not.

“We are extremely grateful for the dedication our Currergate Nursing Home team have shown throughout this difficult pandemic, and the fact that every single one of them is vaccinated, is a fantastic milestone. They are all playing a vital part in ensuring our residents are kept safe from this terribly infectious and deadly disease.”

Registered Manager at Currergate Nursing Home, Cath Davies, said: “We care for older and vulnerable people, so it's essential that we put their needs first and make sure they are as safe as possible. Their families and loved ones trust us with their care, and it is a real privilege to be a part of their lives.

“Our team have worked tirelessly to protect our residents from Covid-19 and ensured nobody is discharged from hospital into our care with Covid-19. We have had no positive cases amongst our residents, who have also received their vaccinations, and we hope to maintain this status moving forward thanks to everyone having their Covid-19 jabs.”
