Question and answer
describe local and organisational policies relevant to the prevention and control of infection
That's things like hand-washing, use of autoclaves/single-use disposable equipment, disposal of clinical waste etc. [ There's a wealth of information available and strong guidance for medical clinicians can be found in the Royal College of Nurses (under 'infection prevention and control') and Care Quality Commission (particularly under 'outcomes') websites among others; a lot of it can be
applied to other sectors. If you do a general web-search on 'infection control policy', you'll get a lot of hits. Some dental surgeries, GP practices and hospitals post their whole policies on their websites. Broadly, you can define a GP practice's infection control policy as 'local' but the PCT's policy as 'organisational'; you can also reduce that down to policies applying to a particular clinical room against the clinic as a whole. ]

define the term risk
Weegy: Definition of 'Risk' The chance that an investment's actual return will be different than expected. Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment. [ Different versions of risk are usually measured by calculating the standard deviation of the historical returns or average returns of a specific investment. A high standard deviation indicates a high degree of risk. Many companies now allocate large amounts of money and time in developing risk management strategies to help manage risks associated with their business and investment dealings. A key component of the risk mangement process is risk assessment, which involves the determination of the risks surrounding a business or investment. ] (More)

describe correct procedures that relate to skin care
Weegy: One of the biggest mistakes that you can potentially make with your skin care is to cleanse too often or too harshly. Even the individual with the oiliest skin only needs to wash up to twice a day. [ Over-washing your skin, or using too harsh of a cleanser, can dry out your skin, according to MayoClinic.com. Instead, choose a cleaner that is free of harsh soaps and made with moisturizers. Avoid using scrubbing devices that irritate your skin; a soft washcloth or the palms of your hand are effective and gentle. Moisturizing daily allows your skin to compensate for moisture loss throughout the day. Some moisturizers even contain humectants, which attract moisture to the face for better hydration. Most moisturizers are basically the same, and rely on ingredients such as mineral oil and vitamin E to nourish your skin and allow it to feel softer. Read more: ] (More)
