As part of the Health and Social Care Act 2008, Care Quality Commission (CQC) registration will require care home providers to comply with essential standards of quality and safety. This includes the need to protect those who may be at risk of exposure to infections.

 

These national cleanliness specifications provide a framework for providers of care homes to demonstrate to the CQC how they ensure their premises are clean and safe and meet the required standards.

 

An editable version of the specimen cleaning plan will be available shortly.
