Infection control in care settings: an essential checklist

Infection prevention and control has always been important in care settings, but now more so than ever.

As part of the Emergency Support Framework (ESF) developed by the CQC, the first discussion area of the framework is ‘Safe Care and Treatment’. Specifically, the first question your inspector can ask is ‘Had risks related to infection prevention and control, including in relation to COVID-19, been assessed and managed?’

And for care providers not regulated by the CQC, this topic, of course, is still incredibly important, not only as something your respective regulatory body will focus on, but also to keep your service users and staff safe.

To give you a helping hand with your duties, our experts have put together a FREE guide sharing a handful of key questions they ask care providers when inspecting their site, specifically relating to infection prevention and control.

In this free guide, we look at important areas such as:

  • Use of sharps;
  • Food hygiene;
  • Welfare training;
  • Personal protective clothing and equipment;
  • Workplace health, safety and welfare.
