Reality Check: Your Infection Preventionist Can't Do It Alone
What's your infection prevention success rate? How many of your recent hospital readmissions were directly linked to infections? Did your facility receive an infection control survey citation in the last 3 years? Having an Infection Preventionist on staff isn't enough, and neither is relentless inservice education.
Learn improvement strategies to energize your infection prevention and control program with innovative approaches and practical tips. With challenges like staff turnover and higher acuity, leveraging partners and resources to improve efficiencies is vital. Skilled nursing facility infection prevention activities are often fragmented, and we'll walk through real-world scenarios demonstrating how an integrated, coordinated, collaborative process creates synergies leading to reduced infection rates. This session focuses on useful best practices and tangible resources you can readily implement in your facility.
