Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

We go above and beyond Government guidance.

We test staff weekly and Family members (residents) 4 weekly.

We support staff and residents to be vaccinated.

We screen all visitors with LFD tests; by taking their temperature and by getting them to complete a questionnaire/risk assessment.

We ensure PPE is worn correctly and that stringent hand washing is followed.

We have stringent cleaning practices.

We conduct monthly infection control audits.

Infection Control Initiatives in place

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.
