“As a group Bio-Rite has more than 40 years’ experience in decontamination and infection control,” confirms Alan Wright, managing director, Bio-Rite. “Our staff and franchisees see a wide variation in standards when it comes to infection control procedures and we are keen to introduce more transparency within the industry which takes care of some of our most vulnerable patients.
“Any care or nursing home that is Bio-Rite protected will participate in two detailed infection control audits each year administered by Bio-Rite’s highly experienced personnel,” explains Wright. “The outcome of these audits include detailed advice and certification, enabling staff to demonstrate a clear paper trail for Care Quality Commission inspections. However, most importantly we hope it will make a valuable contribution in improving infection control standards within care and nursing homes across the UK.”
Bio-Rite protected care homes will be listed on thegoodcarehomeguide.com which is a web directory designed for consumers to assess and review the quality of care offered at institutions which can be searched on a geographical basis.
