New key question for Scottish care home inspections

Scottish regulator, the Care Inspectorate, has developed a new key question 7 to increase its scrutiny of infection prevention and control, personal protective equipment and staffing in care settings.

This will be added to the regulator’s quality framework for care homes for older people and its quality framework for care homes for adults.

This follows new duties placed on the Inspectorate by the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No. 2) Act and subsequent guidance that we must evaluate (grade) infection prevention and control and staffing.  

Care homes in Scotland will see targeted inspections that are short, focused and carried out with colleagues from Health Improvement Scotland and Health Protection Scotland, to assess care and support for people experiencing care and support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
