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 18 June 2013 and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care.

Our judgement

Patients were protected from the risk of infection because appropriate guidance had been followed. Patients were cared for in a clean, hygienic environment.

Reasons for our judgement

There were effective systems in place to reduce the risk and spread of infection.

The registered manager explained to us that they cleaned the room every time it was used; this included damp dusting the equipment and the room. We saw a record of the cleaning schedule. The appropriate cleaning solutions were used to ensure the probes used for ultrasound scanning were clean and free from infection.

The examination couch was cleaned between each patient and the protective cover used on the pillow was changed. The registered manager told us they used protective clothing when required and we saw there was stock of gloves and aprons.
