How are we handling things?
The safety of those we support, as well as the staff who support them, is our highest priority during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Since the start of the pandemic we have been following the latest advice as set out by the DHSCE (Department of Health & Social Care).
Across all care settings our staff are required to wear Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). Our staff understand PPE, such as face masks, gloves and aprons, are only effective if they are worn correctly and used in tandem with good hand and respiratory hygiene practices. It is understood that PPE is required when caring for all our service users, not just those who are exhibiting symptoms, as it is not always clear who might be infected with the virus. Any staff who exhibit symptoms must not come into work as per the Government Guidelines.
Since the start of the pandemic we have transferred all our staff meetings, as well as all training that does not require to be held in person, online. (Naturally, some of our training, such as Manual Handling Training, Medication Competency Training, and CPR, which require a physical demonstration from staff must be attended in person).
All of our staff undergo weekly testing.
At Futures Care, we are operating under the belief that stringent precaution is our best tool in combatting the virus and keeping everyone safe.
