care home security – Jacksons Fencing provide an effective barrier
Body

Care home security has never been so important. The UK’s population is ageing at a significant rate, with the proportion of those aged 65 and above now making up 18% of our population, says Peter Jackson, MD at Jacksons Fencing.

Currently, just under half a million people (4% of the population) in the UK reside in care homes, and with a predicted 24.8% of the population over the ages of 65 by 2050, demand on these buildings is likely to continue to rise.

Natural Cleansing wipes from DDC Dolphin
Body

Using unflushable cleansing wipes in care homes and hospitals is a dangerous false economy that puts lives at risk, warns infection control specialist DDC Dolphin.

Low-grade wipes that cannot be macerated or flushed will block drains and damage expensive sluice room equipment – leading to machine downtime and a higher risk of infection.

Care home and hospital staff have to separate unflushable wipes from maceratable medical pulp. That means more contact and higher infection risks – in the midst of the Covid-19 second wave.
