Infection Control Manuals
We have a range of Infection Control Manuals available for all healthcare sectors. These include Primary Care, Social Care, Hospices (both Adult and Paediatric), Dental Practices, Independent Hospitals and Clinics, and Mental Health.
Compliance with the Health & Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 requires compliance with a range of fundamental standards (previously essential standards) which will be reviewed during the revised CQC inspection process in 2015.
These new Key Lines of Enquiry that directly relate to five key questions encompassing these fundamental standards will be used during inspection. Included in the question relating to the provision of safe care protecting people from avoidable harm is the requirement to assess the risk of, and prevent, detect and control the spread of infections inc. those that are associated with health care. Infection control policies are a requirement by CQC to be available for staff use our manuals below cover all the needs of a particular health care environment and comply with CQC expectations.
