Infection Control / Covid-19

Infection Control / Covid-19

For the past ten years HealthCo has been delivering Infection Prevention and Control guidance to our healthcare clients. We have helped our clients combat MRSA, CPE, Influenza, Clostridium difficile and many more challenging healthcare associated infections. In every instance we help our clients and their staff understand the risk of infection in their workplace and the guidelines produced by governing bodies such as the Health Protection Surveillance Centre HPSC.

Covid-19 has now brought infection control into every workplace and community. It is imperative that all organisations assess their activities in line with Government and regulator advice. We can help guide you through the process, work with you to reconfigure procedures appropriately and ultimately ensure staff and public safety. We’ve added details of ways in which we can help below & feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your organisation’s needs.

The Government has published return to work safely guidelines, applicable to all workplaces. Interpreting how these guidelines fit your workplace can be difficult. With our experience in Healthcare and Health & Safety we are well positioned to help you determine how these are best implemented in your organisation. A well prepared Return to Work plan will not only keep your staff and the public safe, it will communicate confidence and trust to your customers. This will enable your business to grow from strength to strength during this recovery phase in our economy.
As part of the Government’s Return to Work Safely guide, employers need to induct their staff in a wide range of new infection control practices. This is a new way of working and can feel unreal and artificial for staff. At HealthCo we’ve been delivering Infection Control training programs within the health sector for over 10 years. Our tutors will guide your staff through the changes your workplace has implemented, including physical distancing, PPE, hand hygiene.
Healthcare associated infections continue to place a major burden on patients, healthcare staff and the health system. Healthcare facilities have a regulatory duty to develop their staff knowledge and skills in this respect. Our infection Prevention and Control training sets out to achieve this aim in a timeframe and at a level that gains optimal return from all staff within the health system.
Healthcare organisations are required to audit their practices as part of ongoing quality system management. Our team has a vast experience auditing healthcare facilities from acute care to residential and homecare. We can audit your organisation as required covering areas such as waste management, the environment, hand hygiene.
