Infection Control Audit Technology – ICAT

ICAT (Infection Control Audit Technology) is a user-friendly and cost-effective audit tool for healthcare facilities, covering legislation and best practices for infection prevention and control.

This online infection prevention and control audit tool covers comprehensive reviews of all elements of healthcare facility operations, and is designed to ensure all staff comply with the latest legislation and best practices. Qualified infection prevention and control experts continuously review the tools and methods used in ICAT to provide up-to-date service.

ICAT is therefore ideal for organisations with multiple facilities.

The areas covered by the IPS Audit Facility include:

Clinical services | Education | Hand hygiene | Surveillance | Cleaning | Catering services | Laundry services | Preventative maintenance | Staff immunisations and vaccinations | Sharps management | Waste management | Outbreak management isolation | Transmission-based precautions.
Once the infection control audit is complete, you will be provided with a comprehensive report detailing the findings and recommendations for improvement.

Management will have access to the facility reports, as well as a summary of non-compliance and corrective actions. These summaries will also show combined scores by location, and individualised suggestions for facilities that need manuals, staff training or other tools.

If your facility needs further advice or help with infection prevention and control, we offer a range of services to meet almost any form of infection control work. This can include the provision of an on-site specialist nursing resource, strategic level consultancy work, education and seminars, policy and procedure development, refurbishment expertise and governance structure implementation.
