‘The infection control team in GSTT have implemented the MEG audits system based on its easy of use, quality of reports and value for money. MEG’s support and partnership in adapting the system to our needs has been very helpful and will help to maintain our hygiene standards and increase the effectiveness of our team’
— Neil Wigglesworth, Deputy Director, IPC, Guys & St.Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust

Auditing Tools

MEG's Auditing tools are a suite of hygiene auditing applications that can help reduce healthcare associated infections (HAI) through audit, feedback and reporting.

We provide auditing tools on mobile and tablet devices which generate instant results and reports for IPC auditors and managers. Our software also includes training information and WHO hygiene guidelines for auditors to train staff at the point of care.  Audits become are more accurate and auditors save time, allowing IPC teams to spend more time with patients and attending to other clinical and research components within the IPCN role.

 


Build your own Audits

MEG has developed a wide range of auditing tools to be used across a range of different disciplines in hospitals. But we also understand the more custom built the audit is to your hospital, the deeper the understanding of your data. 

With our new 'Build your own Audits' we can build a custom set of questions that align with your hospitals reporting requirements.  We work closely with clients to make sure they get the exact forms they're looking for.

So if you can't find the perfect audit for your hospital's requirements, contact us below.

Clinical Care Bundles 

MEG has developed clinical support tools for Peripheral Vascular Catheter, Central Vascular Catheter and Urinary Catheter maintenance care bundles.

Our CVC and PVC care bundle maintenance tools (the elements) are based on 2014 update of the 2009 National Guidelines for the Prevention of Intravascular Catheter-related Infection in Ireland. These bundles have been adapted with permission from the CVC/ PVC care bundles produced by Health Protection Scotland in 2008 and published as part of the 2009 National Guidelines for the Prevention of Intravascular Catheter-related Infection in Ireland (source:HPSC). Our UCC tool has been sourced from HPSC, which adapted it from the CAUTI bundle produced by Heatlh Protection Scotland.
