Health and safety policy Healthy and safety in a general practice surgery aims to keeping patients safe in the surgery. The responsibility of keeping service users safe should be on all the employees. The Health and Safety at Work Act imposes duties on employers and employees to protect individuals. To enable these duties to be carried out (Deepingspractice.co.uk, 2015)
Through the learning from week 1 and week 2, I have learnt that the most frequent adverse event in health-care delivery is health care-associated infections. It is essential for us to follow the infection control practices that both patients and us are at a risk of being infected. Standard Precautions involve the use of safe work practices and protective barriers, for example, the use of personal protective equipment(PPE). At first, I think Standard Precautions are very easy. Everyone knows PPE can protect us from infections and hand hygiene is important throughout the process. However, what I ignored and did wrong were the correct sequences of wearing PPE and how to use them correctly. The sequences are totally different when taking on and
In the paediatric ward in hospitals infection control and prevention is very important. Service users in hospital are much more prone to infections and diseases as they are already unwell therefore extra precautions are always taken. This includes service providers ensuring that their vaccinations are up to date, working in a
When dealing with substances, they will have a potential hazard which can affect the health care setting. The substance can be a potential hazard in the residential care home as there is clinical waste and cleaning products. As the nurse and the staff member will have to make sure that the cleaning products is locked in a room so that the visitors and the residents won 't be able to go in and touch the chemical products. There is a law called COSHH Regulation 2005, which stand for Control Of Substance Hazardous to Health regulation 2005. COSHH is when the hazardous substance have to be handled in a right way and it has to be stored in a minimise risk which is present. The COSHH must be kept in every care home which can provide detail:
Early years practitioners must follow the policies and procedures of the setting when changing nappies.
We must make sure that all chemicals that we use for experiments, cleaning etc are locked away in a cupboard safely or kept high up on a shelf out of reach of the children so they don't mistake them fr flavoured drinks and swallow them. If we are working with babies it isimportant that safety gate are placed at the bottom of all stairs and at all doors so that they can't get up the stairs or jam thier fingers in the door
These regulations inform practices that cleaning materials must to be kept in a locked cupboard. Also, these regulation state that disposable gloves and aprons must to be provided for cleaning and handing chemicals. In additions these regulations state that different products must not be mixed together as they would produce toxic fumes.
We do not have to agree with what we read, but we should learn from it. Due to inappropriate language, racism, sexual situations, and more books are often banned from children's libraries. When people ban books it does not encourage literacy if anything literacy is being brought down because of the banning of books. Books are among our best teachers so when overprotective adults ban books they are basically keeping their kids away from the literature they need to learn. Therefore, banning books is unconstitutional and not beneficial for schools.
The textbook for this course, Infants, Toddlers, and Caregivers, is based on ten principles for child care that are outlined by researcher Magda Gerber in the 1970’s. The ten principles are based on a philosophy of respect. In addition to the ten principles, a caregiver should know the “Three-R’s” for interaction. The Three R’s are respectful, responsive and reciprocal.
The current framework also consists of the 7 areas of learning. Communication and language is the first area of learning. It says in the EYFS that communication and language is all about giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations. Children are learning and competence in communicating, speaking and listening, beginning to read and write must be supported and extended. Here, the child would be dependant on the practitioner to provide the child with the correct resources when they are at nursery and also to provide the correct help for the child (i.e. a speech and language specialist if needed) and advice for the parent. However not only is the child dependent on the practitioner but their
At Preschool our policies and procedures are stored in our filing cabinet, which i am able to view at anytime.
Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) is one of the most important agents in the prevention of hospital acquired infections or what we termed nosocomial infections. IPC channels every member of the hospital, which includes, healthcare providers (HCP), patients and the hospitals perse. It is important to practice IPC commandment to every hospital as well as community. The Palestinian Ministry of Health (MOH) adopted the national IPC protocol. Employees working in pediatrics hospital are supposed to take precautions to protect their patients and staff from exposure to potentially infectious materials. A fundamental component of standard infection prevention measures are a system of barrier precautions to be used by all personnel
In relation to the title, it is important that EYPs follow this routine in order to safeguard the well-being of the child and prevent them from infection. The routine on my placement setting is that a child’s nappy should be checked when they arrive to nursery and if it needs to be changed then this should be done immediately; whereas if it doesn’t need changed it should be noted on a chart that they have. When a child needs to be changed they should be; the child should only be changed by their key person and anyone who changes the nappy should have a DBS checked passed. When an EYP changes a nappy it must be recorded on a sheet, the EYPs use a code (W = wet and BM = Bowel movement), the time and who changed the nappy. When an EYP changes a nappy they should wear a disposable apron and gloves, which should be disposed of after they have done a change. When the EYP changes the nappy a new sheet of blue roll must be placed on the changing mat; this must be replaced once the mat has been sprayed with anti-bacterial spray. EYPs must wash their hands after every nappy change. The EYP must use a child’s own products which the parent/carers have provided as this protects the child. For example, if a child had an allergy to certain skin products then they must bring their own as without doing this it could put the child at risk of an allergic reaction. An EYP must have all products to hand when changing the nappy and have the child securely on the mat; children must never be left alone on the mat as this could jeopardise their safety as they could fall off and injure
Language development is a critical part of a child’s overall development. Language encourages and supports a child’s ability to communicate. Through language, a child is able to understand and define his or her’s feelings and emotions. It also introduces the steps to thinking critically as well as problem-solving, building and maintaining relationships. Learning a language from a social perspective is important because it gives the child the opportunity to interact with others and the environment. This is referred to the interactionist theory.
Imagine coming home after a tough day and being greeted at the door by your furry four-legged friend wrapping itself around your legs with a smile from ear to ear. There is no doubt that pets bring about bundles of joy, but dogs also provide stress relief, motivation to get active, lessons on responsibility, as well as another reason to smile on a daily basis. We all want the best for our kids; it is obvious that owning a dog has never-ending positive impacts on a child’s life. Owning a dog reduces stress, teaches responsibility, encourages exercise, and provides unconditional love to our beloved children.
