People should be cared for in a clean environment and protected from the risk of infection (outcome 8)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Providers of services comply with the requirements of regulation 12, with regard to the Code of Practice for health and adult social care on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 20 August 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were protected from the risk of infection because appropriate guidance had been followed.

Reasons for our judgement

We walked around the home and saw that all areas were clean and tidy. Staff told us they supported people to keep their rooms tidy.

We saw that support staff had access to personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and aprons. Liquid soap and paper towels were provided in communal areas we also saw stocks of gloves were available. We saw support staff washing their hands at regular intervals throughout our inspection.

Staff had completed infection control training. Training was updated via e-learning using Social Care TV which was accredited by the Salford Training Partnership.
