Clinical Governance - Dental
This policy has been reviewed to include additional information on medicines storage and handling and the management of Controlled Drugs.The references have been updated to reflect the additional content.
This policy has been reviewed and amended with updated content. As a result, policies DPR03, DPR04 and DPR05 have been archived. The student dental nurse is discussed in more detail, as is the agency and temporary worker, given the shift and prevalence of these groups. Equally, the need to check vaccination history/status has been added to initial checks. The further reading section has been amended, and the document relating to student professionalism and fitness to practise is a key read for those with students of any registrant group as it talks fluently about accountability and responsibility. Reference to the Employment Act has also been added.
This policy and procedure has been updated with new RIDDOR reporting requirements.
