Effective infection control for care homes

We have developed quick and easy IPC inspections, one of which is based on the British Geriatric Society guidance. Each provide a fast and consistent way for front line staff and management to evidence they have the correct policies, training, staffing and PPE relating to COVID. The real-time data enables you to deliver consistent and standardised feedback to commissioners.

Seasonal IPC Audit

1. Seasonal IPC Audit

The weekly audit checks appropriate admission policies for residents, visitor and staff sickness policies, availability of IPC supplies, escalation procedures and staff knowledge of infection control. Designed to be undertaken in 15 minutes to provide immediate assurance.

2. Care Home Admissions Readiness Assessment

The assessment is based on guidance from the British Geriatric Society. Your home manager is able to check, and evidence, procedures for dealing with COVID related issues and ensuring there is clear guidance on how to admit and care for residents.
