Infection Control

Robust infection control has been central to healthcare for many decades. Our state of the art facility plays a key role in reducing the spread of infection. We operate the the different floors on The Four Ferns as distinct, separated units. The nurses and care staff on the different floors have different entrances into the building. Each floor has their own changing and break rooms to remove any chance of cross over and interaction of staff from different units.

Our team receive continuous training on infection prevention and control measures. We maintain regular communication with the HSE, HIQA, the St Vincents Hospital Group and other healthcare experts.

We have always maintained Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supplies and our team wear PPE as appropriate. We have meticulous house keeping cleaning procedures in place including all of our rooms being cleaned twice daily. We have hand hygiene pumps dotted everywhere. We have power assisted doors and and auto sanitisers in place. Our most recent purchase is a D-GATE disinfection gate. This takes precautions to the next level and efficiently kills viruses carried on your body to limit unnecessary spreading of infection. An array of nozzles apply the disinfectant fog equally and efficiently over various surfaces and the persons clothing to quickly keep bacteria and viruses without negative effects for the users or the environment.
