NEW SET OF POLICIES APRIL 2023
Staphylococcus aureus is a common bacteria that is frequently found on the skin or in the nose of healthy people without causing infection. It can also be found in the environment in dust.
If the bacteria invades the skin or deeper tissues, and multiplies, an infection can develop. This can be minor, such as pimples, boils, or serious, such as wound infections, pneumonia or bacteraemia (blood stream 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.
