Under the Health and Social Care Act 2008, all primary care practices in England are subject to the authority of the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC assess the quality of the care home and one of the key standards that must be met is that premises and equipment must be clean and suitable to meet the needs of those that use the service. To meet those needs the rooms, equipment and facilities must be hygienically clean.
To meet the legal requirement, this course combines international advice by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the UK NHS National Cleaning Standards, with commercial domestic cleaning skills.
This course is based on a number of UK national and international laws and standards for cleaning and infection control within the healthcare industry and domestic cleaning. It is therefore applicable across all social and primary care facilities, including residential care homes, nursing homes and retirement homes.
