Medical Audits provide advice, support, training, consultancy and auditing services to Acute hospitals, Nursing homes, Hospices, Residential care settings and other Healthcare providers so they can continue to provide and maintain a safe environment for their clients and residents during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Robust leadership in infection prevention and control is essential for effective decision-making, efficient use of resources and ensuring the provision of high quality, safe, effecitve, person-centred care (HIS, 2015)
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
Medical Audits have the knowledge and skills to provide key services including Infection Prevention and COVID-19 training and HIQA Infection Prevention standards audits to Nursing Home, Care home and healthcare providers
so they can do all in their power to reduce risks of spread of infections.
The healthcare environment has long been recognised as a reservoir for organisms and has been identified as associated with the spread of infection.
The environment in prisons and detention centres can also be a source of spread of infections to both detainees and Prison staff.
Cleaning the environment is an essential part of ensuring safe work environment for prison staff and also prevent the spread of infections such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Clostridioides difficile (formally known as Clostridium difficile, C. Diff.) among inmates.
Prison services must take essential steps to protect both inmates and staff from infection.
This is an important element of the quality of care provided, particularly as some infections have the capacity to spread due to the numbers of people sharing eating and living accommodation.
Auditing standardised definitions and then assessment against these standards to ensure consistent auditing and identification of risks.
