Infection Prevention Issues
AMS Infection Prevention Partners is a clinically-focused practice comprised of certified infection preventionists that educate, advise, and mentor on strategies that greatly reduce infection risks in nursing and assisted living facilities. Our F880-compliant infection surveillance programs are inexpensive and easy to implement, saving facility staff precious time while offering increased infection prevention for staff and residents.
CMS identifies F880-compliant infection surveillance as a system to identify infections among staff and residents early and often. Infection surveillance includes Process Surveillance and Outcome Surveillance. Data collected is to be analyzed and reported to nursing home leadership and submitted to the Quality Assurance/Performance Improvement Committee (QAPI) for dissemination and infection prevention plan implementation. AMS Infection Prevention Partners oversees this entire process. Proven to reduce overall infection risks within the first 90-days, we make it simple to identify next steps with minimal time required by facility staff.
