Answer:

Care and Welfare of those who use the service, right?

I've got:

Practice risk assessment, Health and Safety policy, Emergency collapse procedure, Evidence of training in first aid, Medical emergencies etc, Emergency drugs and 02, Fire drill and evidence of training in use of extinguishers, COSHH policy and evidence of training, Significant event protocol and forms ( They will defo want to see some filled in, and evidence of what was done about the event to prevent it happening again). Also added that we use the service of hygienists to facilitate patient's own homecare and oral health.

I haven't got, but would assume that any quality control audits would be good evidence as well.

Answer:

The audits you will probably need are as follows:

Record keeping audit

Fair and Accessible care audit

Post and pre op instructions (both sedation and non-sedation patients)

Post op sheets and call logs.
