While anyone could become infected with legionnaires’ disease some identified groups are more susceptible and at higher risk of infection. These include the elderly and people with a range of existing underlying health conditions.
We understand the importance for the care sector to act and put in place robust management systems and practical solutions to protect anyone in their care who may be at risk from this preventable disease.
We work with many care homes, hospitals, and primary care settings and have built up a wealth of experience in how best to overcome the challenges presented in a healthcare environment and most importantly to ensure the impact on service users, patients, and staff is as low as possible.
Cloud-based legionella logbook for the care sector
Using a cloud-based logbook is one of the best ways for the care sector to keep on top of all the legionella monitoring tasks which need to be performed. Dantek has developed an easy to use cloud-based system which we provide for free to all our contract customers. The system ensures all your data for legionella compliance is held in one place and can be reported on and scrutinised, so you know where any problems are and what you need to do to rectify them. For a short demo of the system please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
5 key points to consider for care settings
Do you have an up to date legionella risk assessment and control scheme in place?
Who is the competent person responsible for managing the risks from legionella?
Are your water systems kept clean, with correct temperature controls and no stagnant water?
Are you frequently checking compliance in line with HSG 274, ACoP L8 & HT04-01?
Do you have accurate records in place to show external agencies?
