Tackling healthcare associated infections is a key priority for the NHS. We know that to bring about an improvement in infection practice it is important that measures knownto be effective in reducing the risk of infection are rigorously and consistently applied.This infection control audit tool for primary and community care settings builds onprevious work for acute Trusts and provides a standardised method for monitoring both clinical practice and the environment. Feeding back audit results will enable staff to systematically identify where improvement is needed, to minimise infection risksand enhance the quality of patient care.We welcome and commend the audit tool to the NHS as a means of helping to improveperformance and patient care forming part of the NHS wide action plan to reduceinfection and increase patient safety. As the Department takes forward its work on theSaving Lives programme and adapts this to other care settings this tool is seen as acrucial piece of work.Sir Liam DonaldsonChristine BeasleyChief Medical OfficerChief Nursing OfficerDepartment of Health (England)  2ICNA  Audit Tools for Monitoring Infection Control Guidelines within the Community Setting 2005  ICNA  Audit Tools for Monitoring Infection Control Guidelines within the Community Setting 2005 3 Contents CONTENTS 1.0Introduction42.0Guidelines for using the audit tools63.0Guidelines for using the database84.0Audit tools4.1Hand hygiene94.2 Environment114.3 Kitchen Area144.4 Disposal of Waste164.5 Bodily Fluid Spillage194.6 Personal Protective Equipment214.7 Sharps Handling234.8 Specimen Handling254.9 Vaccine Transport and Storage274.10 Decontamination295.0Feedback forms326.0Bibliography397.0Steering group membership and acknowledgements46
