The Bell Surgery
There have been no reports this year of any infection transmission incidents that require action.
All staff have been informed to continue to carry out their Infection Control training via Bluestream Academy on-line training scheme. This has improved education and has been tailor-made for clinical and non-clinical staff. It has become part of the induction programme for all staff.
We carried out a hand hygiene audit in May this year in conjunction with national hand hygiene day. The results were very encouraging. All our nursing staff are washing or cleaning their hands at least twice for everytime they see a patient. Doctors too are improving with nearly everyone using alcohol gel between seeing patients. Further training will take place to ensure all our clinicians are keeping their hands really clean.
All our policies and procedures regarding infection control are reviewed annually in line with current guidelines and updated accordingly.
