Infection Control At Home- Patient and Carer Advice
Recent changes to the delivery of healthcare mean that care is increasingly delivered within a patient's home environment. Infection prevention in this setting is just as important as in hospital. There are currently approximately 6 million unpaid carers in the UK, a number that is likely to increase with an aging population. The association between carer training and infection rates is unknown. No evidence of surveillance of healthcare-associated infections in the community is currently available in the UK.
The Practice recognises this fact and will ensure that staff at the Practice use their expertise to inform patients and carers of these risks and provide any guidance and information that is required.
If you need any advice please do not hesitate to ask a member of the Reception Team who will leave a message for our Practice Nurse to advise you.
