This year’s ARI Care Home resource pack has been released by the UKHSA (formerly PHE).
We have included our details within the pack already and ask you adopt this version with immediate affect. We are advised this is an interim version and will change in line with changing guidance, we will update you if/when the pack changes.
- We would like to highlight appendix 1 which needs completing in anticipation of an outbreak, this will be of significant importance should we need to arrange anti-viral treatment for all your residents.
- We would also like to highlight that outbreaks out of hours don’t need reporting after 5pm to the UKHAS (formerly PHE), we encourage you to follow the advice within this pack and to report your outbreak to the IPC team the next working day (or leave a message on the IPC answerphone).
If anyone has or needs any further support with implementing this resource pack, please contact the team who will be more than happy to support
