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 4 February 2013, 5 February 2013 and 6 February 2013, checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

Satisfactory systems are in place to ensure people are protected from the risk of infection.

Reasons for our judgement

We inspected the three locality centres in Truro, Penzance and Liskeard. Premises were all clean and odour free throughout. Addaction had an infection control policy. The registered persons were aware of 'The Code of Practice for health and adult social care on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance' published by the Department of Health. This guidance had been incorporated into the organisation’s policies and procedures.
