Guest article from Homecare Association affiliate members Citation
Autumn’s here, which makes it more likely that your care setting will start to be challenged by the impact of cold and flu season - as well COVID-19 - over the upcoming weeks.
Managing the risk of infection not only keeps your people and service users safe, but also keeps your business ready for any upcoming inspections. So, it’s important that you’re keeping on top of your Health & Safety measures that limit the spread of infection.
The care experts of Homecare Associate Commercial Member, Citation, have created an exclusive guide outlining what your legal responsibilities are - including a checklist of the key questions care providers are asked when their facilities are being inspected - to help you get inspection ready.
The above free guide looks at important areas such as the use of sharps, food hygiene, welfare training, personal protective clothing and equipment, workplace health, safety and welfare.
