Infection control at Liverpool Day Surgery

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Fear of infection is a valid one, however at Liverpool Day Surgery all precautions are taken to ensure infection is kept at bay. Liverpool Day Surgery has gone through vigorous testing and processes which gives them internationally recognised accreditation. The Day Surgery was formally accredited with the Australian Council on Health care Standards in 1996 and in 2012 management decided to move to the internationally recognised ISO certification system and was formally certified to ISO 9001:2008. Since then, Liverpool Day Surgery has maintained its full accreditation status ever since underpinned by a committed dedication from all staff and management.

At Liverpool Day Surgery we are focused on providing the highest care for our patients, we believe that all people should have access to safe and healthy conditions during their stay. It is stated by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia that “A patient-centred health system is known to be associated with safer and higher quality care.” At Liverpool Day Surgery we strive to offer the best patient care possible.

Above shows the 2012 Hospital Performance regarding infection, health and safety; these outcomes are based on the result of implementations of Liverpool Day Surgery systems to prevent and manage healthcare associated infection. It is the belief of Liverpool Day Surgery that through education of staff and patients, and monitoring of processes and systems as well as surveillance of any infection occurring as a result of care provided by the facility, the risk of any infectious disease will be minimised.
