The rise of MRSA and resistant infections have brought infection control management to the forefront of care provider responsibilities. With NICE guidelines specifically aimed at the audience covered by CQC registration, and QCS customers, there is no room for lack of knowledge or complacency. The CQC themselves, in their consultation for the CQC Fundamental Standards, set the registration requirement at “How well are people protected by the monitoring of prevention and control of infection?”

Infection Control

It is essential to implement the correct infection control policies and procedures, both through the Infection Control Policy and Procedure itself, and the infection control procedures embedded throughout the management system.

The QCS Infection Control Module is continually revised so that it is up to date and in step with regulatory change and adaptations to best practice. This enables you to:

  • Carry out suitable risk assessments which detail the real risks present within the care setting.
  • Create and use a reporting system which allows care workers and Service Users to report and record all incidents which may compromise infection control.
  • Constantly review existing policies and practices to ensure that they are up to date and fit for purpose.
