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.
Good respiratory and cough hygiene can help reduce the risk of spreading respiratory infections, e.g. viruses, such as COVID-19, influenza (flu), TB (pulmonary tuberculosis), and the common cold, which in vulnerable people can cause severe illness, such as pneumonia.
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.
