I was wondering if anybody who has had a CQC inspection could let us know if they looked at Washable Keyboards, Touch Free Soap dispenser's, Sanitiser dispenser's and moisturiser dispenser's.
I had my inspection 10 days ago, and the inspector did not look at any of those, apart from the Sanitiser dispensers in the waiting areas, this does not necessarily mean that a different inspector won't have a look at those, better safe that sorry 🙂
They checked our surgeries and noted what we used and also asked our nurses about handwashing routines.
Our inspector didn't – at the time we didn't have any of those, just plastic keyboard covers. However, each inspector will notice different little things. I also think that the more dental surgeries they inspect, they will get to know what sort of things to look for – past the obvious I mean. For instance if they see a basic level, then one that goes the extra mile, or 2 miles – if that makes any sense!
For ours they did a thorough check of surgeries and all decom procedures. We have all those in place and passed with no problems.
