The Bella Moss Foundation (BMF) has created free guidelines to help veterinary professionals combat the threat of practice-acquired infections.
Set to be launched at BSAVA Congress, the Bella Moss Infection Control Guidelines have been created by the charity’s top veterinary advisors in response to the wide-ranging approaches to infection control seen in everyday practice.
Authors include vet and RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) guru Pam Mosedale, RVN Louise O’Dwyer and Edinburgh-based dermatologist Tim Nuttall.
BMF president Jill Moss said: “With no enforceable standards of cleanliness for veterinary practices there is a wide variation in hygiene and infection control.
“As practising veterinary surgeons and nurses, BMF’s clinical advisors have a wealth of experience and have seen many approaches to infection control – some exceptional and others not so good.”
The guidelines will be available via the BMF stand at congress and, thanks to the charity’s sponsor Vétoquinol, will also be available free to download from the BMF website.
