Every year over 300,000 patients in England acquire a healthcare associated infection whilstin hospital. These infections cost the NHS more than £1 billion a year
TS+ auditing system has been created specifically for mobile auditing. It has been designed and developed from the ground up, in consultation with Infection Prevention and Control Nurses (IPCN), Practice Development Nurses and Nurse Led Audit Teams.
Our mobile auditing system is bespoke created to take into account the detailed needs of nurses auditing in all areas of the Health Service from acute care to long term care, mental health and community based care.
Healthcare Risk waste is a component of risk registers in the majority of hospitals and Trusts- whether Acute or Community or Long Term Care or Primary Care, Risk waste is generated and has to be carefully managed to prevent risk to Healthcare workers and the Public.
Non Risk Waste needs to be separately stored and discarded so that the costs of managing risk waste can be kept to a minimum and so that any recyclable waste can be collected and disposed of according to National requirements
Segregation of waste into Risk and Non Risk waste is the first part of the waste management process.
Transport and Storage
Waste must then be separately stored, transported and disposed of meeting stringent National and International standards and guidelines. Internally, in healthcare facilities Healthcare Workers (HCW) transport of waste must be in specifically assigned risk waste or non risk waste containers
these then have to be cleaned and decontaminated after use.
Waste bags and bins must be kept clean and stored safely away from the public and away from Vermin.
Under EU law, the generator of the waste is ultimately responsible for disposal of the waste.
For this reason, Healthcare facilities must label and tag all waste and carefully monitor the waste disposal company to ensure all standards are met.
Transport of healthcare waste is governed by ADR regulations ls under the remit of the transport of dangerous goods (ADR) regulations - Transport of dangerous goods by road - and these too need to be followed to ensure all healthcare settings meet best practice standards and guidelines.
