Make An Enquiry

Wessex care were the first group of care homes in the UK to implement the use of the latest innovative technology from Inivos, called Ultra-V. This equipment which uses UV-C light technology, is used widely in hospitals to eliminate vegetative bacteria and viruses such as Covid-19.

The device is mobile and can be transported between care homes when required, to decontaminate areas routinely and prevent the potential transmission of any undetected microorganisms and prevent the spread of illness within our homes and care centres.

Wessex Care’s Infection Control Procedures

Wessex Care’s Infection Control Procedures

Here at Wessex Care, we have and will continue to do everything in our power to care and protect our residents, community customers and employees while supporting the NHS and Social Care colleagues. All and any staff illness result in immediate self-isolation and testing after seven days and no staff can return to work until they have a negative test and are symptom free.

To find out more about our specific procedures, the support we provide staff and clients and if you have any questions, you can view our Covid-19 briefings via the website homepage which are sent to all residents, relatives and staff and you can also contact us.

What is UltraV Technology?

The Ultra-V device uses ultra-violet light at the wavelength 245nm via 10 powerful lamps and is used to decontaminate areas, typically used in hospitals, to reduce the transmission of bacteria and viruses. UV-C has been scientifically proven to kill bacteria by destroying the nucleic acid in DNA.

Monitoring sensors called ‘spectromes’ are placed around the room to control the UV-C decontamination process effectively. Our staff complete the Inivos training programme prior to using the device and are provided with a unique key card to activate the equipment when required for use.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Public Health England advice on Personal Protective Equipment is strictly adhered to at all times. We have a substantial buffer stock of all PPE required and continue to receive weekly additional supplies.

Staff are aware that they cannot follow the easing of restriction for the general public and must in their own personal lives maintain the high levels of infection control which now includes the wearing of a mask when in any environment that produces closer contact, irrespective of the one or two meter rule, with the general public e.g. transport, shopping etc.

We have supplied a special reusable mask for all employees to assist in this matter.
