NEW SET OF POLICIES APRIL 2023
This Policy is one of the ‘Standard infection control precautions’ (SICPs) referred to by NHS England in the National infection prevention and control manual (NIPCM) for England.
Hand hygiene is one of the most important procedures for preventing the spread of infectious agents.
The aim of this guidance is to promote good hand hygiene amongst all staff, to protect both themselves and residents from acquiring a healthcare associated infection.
A downloadable Community Infection Prevention and Control (IPC)Policy which can be adopted by your organisation is available below. Alternatively, a complete set of IPC Policies for Care Home settings is available to purchase @ £89.99, including postage – details can be found on the flyer and resource order form.
