PURPOSE: The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate hand washing and a surgical scrub. By completing this experiment, I learned that the proper water temperature with soap for a few minutes is the best way to wash your hands. Based on my knowledge on normal microbiota, I didn't expect the hand washing procedure with water to remove the bacteria off my hand. Therefore, I expected the water plate to have maximum growth. I also expected the soap plate to have minimum growth because that procedure included the soap-and-brush scrub.

Infection control 1.1 It is my responsability to wear the PPE that is provided, also to wear the correct colour aprons to the job i am doing. It is important to use the correct colour mops, buckets and brushes this helps to stop cross infection. Also using the correct colour chopping bored. 1.1a Using equipment provided, washing hands when necessary. Washing clients clothes separate from other clients.
The bathroom should have safety features installed such as tub bars and toilet bars and nonslip pads in the shower. Making these changes will enhance Mrs. O’Neill’s safety at home. It would eliminate her risk for falls, and assist her in taking care of herself. The home health nurse can check those things on her visits and make sure that they continue to be safe for Mrs. O’Neill. Another healthcare issue would be the medicines in her cabinet that have expired.
Assessment One Outline the health and safety policies and procedures of the work setting. In my setting I have to learn to do the tasks of: • Nappy Changing • Food Preparation and Clearing • Children’s Sleep Pattern • Fire Procedures • Key Personal files and individual Learning Plans (ILP’s) • The care of the nursery equipment • Lifting and handling • Safeguarding Children • Staff Presentation and Safety • Grievances • Accidents • Security Toilet and Nappy Changing Procedures The Policy and Procedures of the Montessori Lido of toileting and nappy changing. We MUST make sure that we have completely washed our hand so that we have limited the number of germs that might be living on them, all so we HAVE to wear the disposable gloves along with the blue plastic apron. Once we have done that then we let the child get the changing mat while we gather together all the equipment that we should need such as nappy bags, disposable gloves, blue apron, wipes, book of records, the Child’s bag which should contain their own nappies, wipes (if they don’t have the wipes then we can use the ones provided by the nursery) and cream. Once colleted then first we put on the disposable gloves and apron as well as wiping down the changing mat with a small amount of antibacterial spray.

So as a precaution to prevent infection being spread from the bacteria on the hand they often wash their hands regularly with anti-bacterial hand wash. Standard Precautions * Protect broken skin * Observe the hand hygiene policy * Use protective clothing correctly * Observe aseptic precautions for all invasive procedures/manipulation of catheters. * Clean, disinfect and/or sterilise as appropriate reusable equipment between each use. * Handle and dispose of bed linen correctly. * Dispose of sharps and clinical waste correctly. * Clean/disinfect spillages of blood/body fluids as per guidance.
When planning activities we must make sure their there is enough space for the activities to be carried out safely. Toilet areas are also checked on a regular basis throughout the day to make sure it is clean, has toilet paper towels and soap available for hand washing. The temperature of the room also needs to be comfortable and sufficient lighting and there is always fresh drinking water available. A first aider will always be present in the rooms. For a child who has a hearing impairment we would provide visual aids for them so they can be made aware of health and safety, for example if a child was running indoor we could have no running signs around the room and point this out to them.
Once an item has been cleaned it must be dried thoroughly with a disposable cloth to prevent any organisms multiplying. 2.3 Disinfecting agents are used to reduce the number of microorganisms. Disinfectants are governed by COSHH regulations 1999. Storage and usage instructions should be adhered to. The correct PPE should also be used when disinfecting items ensure that the solution reaches all surfaces of the item to ensure thorough disinfection before the sterilisation process can
Hands should be washed under running water for 10-15 seconds using soap or antiseptic washand dried with paper towel. In addition to washing hands with antiseptic products you can use hand sanitizers. Practising good hand hygiene prevents transmission of nosocomial infections which are only aquired while in the health care facility. Encouraging patients, workers and visitors to do the same will continue the cycle of infection control. Conclusion.
