Infection Prevention and Control Audit

by Spencer Garner

IPC: Are you ready for the winter pressure?

The last 18 months have thrown 'normal ways of working' out the window. Systems and processes have changed beyond all recognition as organisations react to the pandemic and resultant challenges, including staff shortages, PPE distribution and working in fear. The world has been forced to change the way care is provided.
