Patient Safety

Health & Safety, Infection Control & Decontamination

It is extremely important to the team at Portmore that patients feel confident in our standards of Health & Safety and Infection Control.

Portmore practice to the highest standards of infection control possible in line with current guidance from HTM 01-05

The practice has a dedicated decontamination suite, this means that all instruments & equipment are re-processed in a specialised room with state of the art equipment.

We operate ‘best practice’ decontamination processes, using 2 x Medi-Safe surgical washer-disinfectors for thermal disinfection prior to being autoclaved.

We have 2 Dental Nurse Decontamination Leads, Liz and Adriana

This means that we have two experienced, qualified dental nurses on site who are responsible for monitoring and auditing daily/weekly/monthly checks on equipment & instrument processing.

All Dental Nurses complete robust daily/weekly infection control checks in each surgery.

We use ‘Safer Sharps’ at Portmore – this is by far the safest way of administering local anaesthetic, reducing the risk of sharps injuries within our team.

We have a robust vaccination policy in place to ensure all team members are vaccinated against Hep B.

We employ an external cleaning company who carry out a thorough clean of the whole practice every evening; in addition to a ‘deep’ clean every quarter.

We carry out the following audits and risk assessments at the recommended intervals:

Bi-Annual Audit of Infection Control
Hand Hygiene
Health and Safety
Audit of Care Standards
Audit of Digital Radiography
Clinical Waste Audit
Disability access Audit
Audit of Patient Complaints
Business Security Analysis
Fire Risk Assessment
Audit of Prescription Drugs
Sensitive Information Risk Analysis
Audit of Patient Waiting Times
Audit of Human Resource Management
Legionella & Water Quality Audit
Domestic Cleaning Audit

All clinical team members undergo continual training and development in the following areas:

• Intensive Life Saving (ILS) – including CPR and defibrillation
• Infection control training – including waste management, DUWL, equipment maintenance and validation
• Radiation Protection training
• Mental Capacity training
• Vulnerable Adult and Children Safeguarding Level 2 training
