New quick guide - helping to prevent infection

This  new quick guide from NICE and SCIE covers the basics of infection prevention in care homes. Managers and staff will find it a useful reminder of the practical steps they can take to minimise the risk of infection for the people in their care. It will also help services to achieve the infection prevention standards required by the CQC. 

For people living in care homes, infections can be serious, and in some cases, life-threatening. They can also make existing medical conditions worse. It is therefore vital to take the steps that can help prevent infection occurring. Managers and staff in care homes will find this guide very useful as a reminder of the most important methods of preventing infection. Click Here
