It’s your duty to draft the infection control program for your facility, and put it into action. This resource can show you how.
The landscape of infection control has changed dramatically in recent years. The rapid spread of virulent diseases like methiallin resistant Staphylococcus aureus, (MRS), pandemic flu, and C. difficile, means surveyors are now paying closer attention to infection control than ever. The Joint Commission has made the prevention of healthcare-acquired infections one of its National Patient Safety Goals.
Meanwhile, your role as an infection control professional has expanded. You’re no longer simply an infection control professional (ICP), you’re a full-scale trainer, perennial student, and de facto compliance officer. So, when faced with the challenge of revising or creating your facility’s infection control program, you need reliable answers, now.
Compliance is crucial. Today’s infection control professionals must not only draft the infection control program for their facility, but are also under great pressure to formally prove adherence to practice and policy.
Infection Control Program Guide streamlines the time-consuming process of creating an infection control program by providing all the necessary forms, policies, and tools you need, enabling you to focus on ensuring compliance to your program. Best of all, with a successful program in place, you’ll have the documentation you need to help convince the executives at your facility to invest more money in infection control.
Who needs this comprehensive resource? Infection Control Program Guide will help both veteran and novice infection control professionals prepare for daily challenges—which can range from enforcing hand hygiene policy to isolating patients with MRSA to preparing for Joint Commission inspections.
