Enhanced Infection Control Pledge

Inspire’s Enhanced Infection Control Pledge outlines our continuing commitment to infection prevention and control and the additional steps that we’ve taken to protect the people we support.

At Inspire, we have always followed best practice when it comes to infection control. However, in light of the ongoing risk that COVID-19 poses to those with underlying health conditions, we have taken additional extra precautionary steps to protect the people we support.

Every resident and visitor in our homes can expect a safe, clean and hygienic environment, that protects their health and supports their wellbeing.

Nothing is more important to us. Our Enhanced Infection Control Pledge means that you can relax knowing that we are working hard to keep you or your loved safe and protected no matter what happens.

In addition to everything that you would normally expect from Inspire Neurocare, which includes:

  • A minimum of thorough daily cleans of all bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces
  • Additional cleans at individual’s request, as and when required by Life Skills Facilitators or after activities
  • Frequent cleaning of surfaces such as door handles, coffee tables, and the physiotherapy gym 
  • Use of industry standard antibacterial sprays and sanitising products that disinfect and prevent infection transmission

We have introduced additional measures that protect our residents and ensure Inspire services are safe and protected.

Here are just a few of our enhanced infection control measures:

  • We have increased the frequency of our infection control audits and our handwashing audits, where we spot check that all of our procedures are being followed correctly and ensuring that we exceed the industry standard for infection control
  • We’ve introduced UV Lightboxes on receptions and PPE stations throughout our homes
  • We have a detailed visitation policy that protects our homes against any external infection threat
  • All team members have revisited their infection control training and received additional training where necessary to ensure their knowledge is above industry standards
  • Introduced regular team prompts and checks also ensure that all team members are continually reminded of our infection control policy and the importance of good hygiene throughout the home.

“Coronavirus (COVID-19) has highlighted the importance of robust infection control within care homes more than ever before, and that’s why we knew it was imperative that we communicate our ongoing commitment more widely. Our Enhanced Infection Control Pledge outlines the additional steps that we have put in place to protect our services. We promise to ensure that our infection control measures are above industry standards and that we always follow best practice and the latest Government advice.  The people we support and their families can be confident that they are being cared for in a safe and hygienic environment.”
