    1. Is compliance to ANTT or your alternative standard aseptic technique audited?   

    Yes

    Comment: There is an audit which includes a section regarding ANTT and this can be completed by operational managers during ride outs at point of care and/or a member of the IPC team. These may predominantly be completed by operations management and feedback can be given to staff following the audit. There is also a specific quality assurance form to measure compliance by internal or external stakeholders.

     

    1. Does your organisation provide a periodic competency assessment update?

     

    This element is competency tested if available during the audit which can be conducted by managers. This is not periodic or routinely programmed for each individual member of staff. The mandatory annual update (which must be completed by all staff) includes a section on IPC which includes a question regarding ANTT and the instruction to use ANTT can be found in our mandatory training handbook. This does not include the specifics of the procedure, however, this information can be found in the IPC policy which is signposted.
