Water outlet flushing simplified
L8guard is ‘a simple web-based compliance solution chosen by NHS Trusts countrywide to record their lowuse water outlet flushing’.
L8guard said: “The system manages over half a million Legionella flushing risk assessments and almost six million Pseudomonas flushing records. Annual user surveys confirm year after year that 99% of staff find L8guard easy to use. The system has been described by clients as an ‘an invaluable, brilliant system’. It is designed to allow users to replace their paper-based systems by automatically sending out locationspecific emails asking staff to log their low-use water outlet risk assessment – either confirming there are no low-use outlets to report, identifying new lowuse water outlets and confirming they have been flushed, or reporting a fault or lack of access.
“Should the initial recipients fail to log the risk assessment within a specified time, the system escalates this to a more senior staff member. Nominated personnel can view up-tothe minute departmental performance via the ‘admin interface’, and receive daily, weekly, and monthly automated reports. These are also stored in the system’s reports library, ensuring quick and easy access to historic flushing records.”
