NEW SET OF POLICIES APRIL 2023
In care home settings, the use of ‘Standard infection control precautions’ (SICPs) is usually all that is required for the majority of infections. SICPs may, however, be insufficient to prevent transmission of specific infections, therefore, isolation or additional ‘Transmission based precautions’ (TBPs) may need to be taken when caring for residents with a confirmed or suspected infection or colonisation.
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.
