Instructions:

Read the case study and answer the questions.

Case Study 1Sarah has just started her new role as a disability support worker at SupportingU, a local residential disability care service. The managing director, Michelle, received a referral from a friend to hire Sarah to fill a maternity leave position. Sarah has the necessary qualification and experience in the field, and as the residence is quite busy Michelle decides to consider Sarah to work on a one-month probationary trial period. It has been nearly a month since Sarah started working at the residential facility and Michelle has recently been informed by another support worker that, upon a number of occasions whilst tending to the patients, Sarah does not wear the required gloves when administering medication and performing cleaning duties. She has also been reported to not wash her hands. This news is particularly concerning as Sarah has been coughing and sniffing over the last few days, displaying onset of flu-like symptoms. Some of the staff aware of this issue are concerned of infections or the flu spreading, especially since the residence is rather small and close contact with each other is quite likely. Michelle is quite surprised with this news as the residence has very strict guides on hand hygiene policy, which must be followed at all times. There have been a few small posters put up around the residence as reminders, and hand sanitiser solution in every room – although there has been no sure way of monitoring that all staff are adhering to this process. Now, at one month into Sarah’s role, Michelle decides to conduct a direct observation of Sarah treating her next patient. Sarah is on duty for her next client with Michelle directly observing. Michelle notes down the following during her observation: Sarah did not wear the required gloves when feeding the client, nor did she follow proper clean-up procedures. The client was given their medication and put to bed, however Sarah did not change the client’s linen as scheduled. Sarah did not wash her hands once during the observation. ‘ Through direct observation, Michelle has now been able to confirm that Sarah did not follow the correct hand hygiene or clean up procedures. HLTINF001 COMPLYING WITH INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

You are required to do the following:

2.      What hazards have been identified after completing the risk assessment?

 

3.      Who is at risk in this scenario?

 

4.      What infections could potentially occur?

 

5.      What PPE would be required to help minimise the risks?

 HLTINF001 COMPLYING WITH INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

6.      What is Michelle’s responsibility for infection prevention and control as the manager of the residential care facility?

 

7.      Who could Michelle seek advice from to discuss work health and safety issues?

 

8.      What sustainable procedures, practices or initiatives could Michelle implement at the clinic to help control potential infection outbreaks? Provide at least three examples.

 

9.      What type of training would need to occur for better hand hygiene? Provide three examples.

 

10.   What documentation would be required to support these initiatives? Provide five examples.

 HLTINF001 COMPLYING WITH INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

11.   Review The 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene Program by Hand Hygiene Australia and explain how this would be a beneficial initiative for Michelle’s workplace to participate in.

 

12.   Who is responsible for monitoring and maintaining these procedures? 

 

13.   Imagine you identified a laceration on Sarah’s hands that was bleeding. Explain the hand care procedure you would follow.

 

14.   Sarah was suffering from cold and flu. Explain the procedures for respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette in this situation.

 

Case Study PART 2aIt has been nearly three months since Michelle had the issue with hand hygiene at the residential facility and all has been going well since.  Michelle has recently been informed of the COVID-19 Outbreak in the global community. Michelle and the management team need to develop procedures immediately to ensure the facility is protecting residents, staff and visitors. HLTINF001 COMPLYING WITH INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

15.   Download the PDF file from the following website and use as your guide to answer questions 15–18.  https://www.health.gov.au/resources/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidelines-for-outbreaks-in-residential-care-facilities

The updated procedures need to have guidelines for:

§  Identifying a potential COVID-19 outbreak and the steps to take

 

§  How to manage Visitors

 

§  How to manage Communication with clients

 

§  Infection control procedures, including PPE required

 HLTINF001 COMPLYING WITH INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

 

17.   What key factors would need to be considered when adapting the Risk Management Plan for COVID-19?

RISK LEVELS

Resolution at each level involves reducing the risk level to a lower level of risk

§  Extreme – requires immediate assessment with management consideration. A detailed plan, regular monitoring and reporting is required with a target resolution within 1 month timeframe

§  High – requires immediate assessment with senior staff consideration, planning and reporting. Target resolution should ideally be within 3 months

§  Medium – reviewing of existing controls and planning required. Resolution timeframe should be within 1 year

Low – the risk may be tolerable and controlled if managed with high quality process and procedures.
