Care home visits are able to resume in England according to the latest guidelines, as long as local authorities and local public health directors say it is safe. Residents will be limited to seeing the same one visitor and care providers can determine where the visit will take place, and if social distancing rules should be followed.
During lockdown, many care homes have been creative to allow visitors to carry on seeing their loved ones, however these don’t replace the traditional face to face visit. To safely carrying out face to face visits, it is necessary for care providers to collect details and maintain records of visitors on their premises to support NHS Test and Trace. QCS have created a Visitor form that can be sent out when booking visits or can be completed on arrival.
Make use of our Care Home Track & Trace Questionnaire to help you collecting necessary data, starting from today.
