Infections in healthcare settings (healthcare-associated infections, or HAIs) can be a costly problem. Your organization may face increased treatment costs for both the organization and the patient, increased care requirements that place more of a burden on staff, or even fines or litigation.
In addition to being a requirement by CMS, a Certified Infection Control Preventionist can make a big difference for your care quality standards and for avoiding these potential problems. These professionals are highly-trained specialists who promote a culture of safety; educate patients, families, staff, and the community; and advocate for recommended improvements to incorporate the best and most recent practices for hygiene, prevention, and safety.
Finding a Certified Infection Control Preventionist can be challenging. They can be hard to locate, and traditional avenues of job advertising don’t necessarily work well. Plus, you might not need a full-time person, just the right person with specific experience and expertise.
