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

The wellbeing of the residents is a priority and nothing is more important than keeping them in touch with family and friends in any way possible. From Monday 7th February, the home are pleased to return to a more relaxed visitor structure in all of their homes as there will be no limit on the number of visitors that residents are able to welcome.

Woodthorpe is keeping the staff and residents safe by, ensuring the home follows all covid restriction. We have a process called "Fresh Living" where we ensure the home is cleaned to a high standard with fresh air being circulated within the home. The staff continue to be lateral flow tested twice weekly as government guidelines.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Air Filtration & Purification We are using air filtration and/or air purification devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
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.
