Ask the IP: Infection control
is NOT just a box to check in long-term care
Join the conversation with AMS Infection Prevention Partners Chief Infection Control Officer, Heather Hutson, RN, IP-BC, who will share her expertise and insights, as well as answer your questions, on what facilities need to do to establish and maintain an effective Infection Prevention & Control program. Topics to be covered include:
Empower your IPs
Infection Preventionist isn’t just a title alone; it’s a critical role in your facility. Yet one of the most common things we hear in facilities is that IPs don’t have the education or support they need. Let’s change this.
Infection surveillance should be proactive and preventative
In fact, it’s required: F880 is the most-cited CMS violation three years running, yet we often walk into facilities without proactive systems in place.
Think and track beyond COVID-19
Unfortunately for some facilities, tracking of current infection control and prevention measures are focused specifically on COVID-19 and its highly contagious variants. COVID isn’t going away any time soon, but neither are multidrug resistant organisms, so let’s think and track beyond COVID.
We’ll give you actionable recommendations to shore up your IPC program, ensure your entire team is educated and empower your IPs to have the safest facility you can.
