NSW Dentists are feeling uncomfortable
“The Dental Council of NSW is conducting an audit of infection control measures in dental practices.”
So stated an offical letter to all NSW Dentists.
Not withstanding the proviso that it only applied to NSW Dentists who have an open complaint, it is a good idea to work through the directives from Dental Council of NSW and see that you have everything in order.
One of the requirements is a completed DBA Infection Control Guideline Self-Audit. Check out how SmartDentist answers the audit.
Some practical practice resources:
- DBA Infection Control Guideline Self-Audit by SmartDentist.
- Sterilizer (autoclave) log sheet to use for your logbook.
- What tests do I need for my steriliser? by SmartDentist
Disaster recovery worst practice: Don’t test your backups.
Tomorrow I go into the clinic just to meet our IT specialist and we are going to do a backup recovery of our patient management software.
Similarly the DBA self-audit does take a bit of thinking and time – but helps get rid of that uncomfortable feeling we would all have, if we were queered by the Board.
Whether you are in NSW or another state…do the self-audit and smile.
Warm wishes for Christmas
