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 safety and wellbeing of our Residents is our priority; we've taken significant steps to ensure this.
We've developed a robust operational quality management system that defines the way that we work, which is monitored by a Clinical Governance Group and inspected by our own team in Service Quality Inspectors. All homes have an infection control champion.
Through a range of feedback mechanisms, we constantly monitor the quality of our services by actively encouraging confidential and open compliments, complaints or concerns from Residents, Colleagues, Relatives and Health and Social Care Professionals; this valuable feedback helps us to evolve our services and shape the way that we work.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) - Regulator’s Assessment
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, regulators have assessed the preparedness of care providers in relation to infection prevention and control. Details of the regulator’s latest findings can be found below.
Regulator: CQC
safe-tick Use of PPE The provider assured the regulator that it was using personal protective equipment effectively and safely.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)
