During an inspection looking at part of the service

On the 18 September 2013 we found the provider non-compliant in the regulation regarding infection control. The provider sent us a report that set out the steps they would take to ensure they met the regulations. At this inspection we found the provider had taken all necessary steps and was now compliant with the regulations.

At the previous inspection we found the provider did not have infection control risk assessments or regular infection control audits. The flooring was not sealed at the edges and a dental chair had a large tear on it which did not allowing for effective cleaning. We also found some electrical cords to dental equipment had been repaired using tape which meant that they could not be cleaned effectively to help prevent cross infection.

At this inspection we saw the provider had conducted infection audits which had highlighted no concerns. Flooring and electrical cords had been replaced which allowed for effective cleaning. Computer key boards had been replaced to allow them to be cleaned. A new shelf had been added in the surgery used for the sterilisation of instruments. This meant that clean instruments did not come into contact with dirty instruments.

We did not speak to patients during this inspection.
