Care homes build infection control army

HC-One has created an infection control army to increase and enhance infection control standards and procedures in its care homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

HC-One operates 329 care homes across the UK, specialising in dementia, nursing, residential and specialist care for elderly people.

The infection control army consists of over 800 colleagues across the HC-One care home network. Every member receives infection control training during their induction and new modules are regularly added to reflect changes to government guidance.

All members have gone on to complete further training to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to coach, train and mentor new colleagues on an ongoing basis.

Every care home involved also has a Housekeeping Champion and a Care and Clinical Champion who ensure all colleagues are confident with the infection control measures in place.

Liz Whyte, director of standards and COVID-19 lead said: “We would like to say a special thank you to all of our colleagues who have put themselves forward to be part of the HC-One infection control army and who are leading the way in protecting our residents and colleagues against the virus. Your hard work and commitment to protecting lives and fighting the virus is outstanding.”
