To ensure you are fully ‘CQC ready’ Knowledge Oral Health Care can assist with and provide template policies and clinical governance; demonstrating evidence of accurate record keeping and audits.

Providing good oral care for residents can be challenging; time constraints, increased workloads, uncooperative residents and carers lacking knowledge and skills can result in inadequate oral care.

In palliative and end-of-life care it becomes particularly important to ensure the person’s mouth is clean and comfortable.
