The Bella Moss Foundation Practice Hygiene Self Audit is a web-based assessment tool that allows staff to monitor and routinely measure cleanliness across the whole practice – from theatre and prep rooms to laundry and waiting rooms.The simple tick sheet format allows staff to rate the hygiene protocols in each area, resulting in a room-by-room percentage hygiene score, as well as an overall contamination risk score. The tool was developed by vet and RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) expert Pam Mosedale and leading VN lecturer Louise O’Dwyer, along with Edinburgh academic Tim Nuttall and industry stalwart Chris Laurence.

Louise O Dwyer

“The tool and guidelines needs to be embraced by all members of staff, from non-clinical staff through to veterinary surgeons, as every individual has the potential to make an impact within their practice by taking action on infection control.”

The infection control guidelines also developed by the above are standards for practices to adhere to and we hope these free tools will be useful for practices. Don’t forget we are a non-profit charity and donations are always welcome to help us continue to provide free education for the future
