Overview

Inspection carried out on 10 April 2013

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

Following our last inspection to the service in November 2012, we identified essential standards of quality and safety were not being met in respect of Regulation 10 and Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010. We asked the provider to take appropriate action to achieve compliance with these regulations.

We did not speak to people using the service during our visit. We gathered evidence of people’s experiences of the service by speaking with staff and reviewing other records related to the running of the service.

The registered manager showed us the changes that had been made since our last inspection. We saw the service had reviewed and updated its infection control policy and rolled out cleanliness and infection control training to staff working at the practice. A new decontamination room had been built and new polices and procedures for the cleaning, inspection, sterilisation and storage of instruments had been implemented.

The general environment was clean and tidy. Hand washing sinks were readily available with guidance about good hand washing techniques clearly displayed.

We saw the service had introduced an effective system to audit, monitor and review the practice’s system, process and procedures. We noted learning from these checks had been used to make improvements and changes.
