Indoor visits have started at The Berkshire Care Home in Wokingham, much to the delight of families,
residents and our team. All brighterkind care homes are supporting residents to have a weekly indoor visitor, where it is safe to do so within local guidance.
Alongside other infection prevention measures, additional equipment is being introduced into our home to give families, residents and the team more assurance with preventing infection. A new ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) swab testing kit, which swabs for bacterial presence, will allow the team
members to swiftly measure the levels of cleanliness being achieved in the home as part of an accurate and reliable audit process.
ATP testing is a recognised tool to validate cleaning processes and complies with government and HACCP regulations. It’s quick and easy to use, can test wet or dry surfaces and provides results
within 15 seconds.
Home Manager, Vicki Morl said: “In the last few months at The Berkshire, we have focused even more time, investment and energy on an enhanced approach to housekeeping and cleanliness. Our caring team continues to maintain a safety assured approach, to ensure a consistently clean place for all to
live, work and visit.”
