Infection Prevention and Control Service
Healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) can develop either as a direct result of healthcare interventions such as medical or surgical treatment, or from being in contact with a healthcare setting. A robust Infection prevention and control service reduces the risk of HCAI to patient’s visitors and staff and ensures compliance with national standards and CQC requirements.
Our service will you give peace of mind that your business has up to date infection prevention and control advice, that you are compliant with the CQC in relation to IP&C and that your training is developed and delivered by qualified and experienced infection control nurses.
We can assist in the development of an assurance framework. This will involve:
- Reviewing your systems and processes to ensure that infection prevention and cleanliness are an integral part of your business.
- Developing governance and accountability structures which can demonstrate clear responsibility for infection prevention and control.
- Support you through CQC or other regulatory body inspections
- Ensuring your business is COVID-19 secure
