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

Our judgement

Dr Dorrington Ward ensures that people who use the service receive care in a clean environment and effectively prevents and controls infection in everyday practice.

User experience

In the case of this location it was not practicable to undertake a visit when patients were on site. Dr Dorrington Ward is a single-handed doctor and sees very few private patients. He does not treat patients but undertakes diagnosis and referral as required.

Other evidence

We observed the consultation room and it was appropriately clean and tidy. The clinical waste is segregated. Sharps bins were assembled correctly. Sharps bins are used for the disposal of syringes and needles. Single use items are not reused. No surgical activity takes place at this location.

There is a contract for the collection of clinical waste.

All areas of the location were clean and hygienic.
