How Effective Are Your Infection Control Practices?

To help prevent instances of healthcare-associated infections, the Center for Disease Control has created a new tool for assessing infection control programs and practices in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

Healthcare-Associated-Infections (HAIs) in personal care homes can lead to increased costs to an organization. HAIs can easily spread when there is:

  • Improper hand hygiene
  • Lack of an infection control program
  • Inadequate surveillance and disease reporting
  • Absence or limited use of PPE
  • Lack of signage posted in the facility regarding cough etiquette
  • Improper use of antibiotics
  • Insufficient training for healthcare workers who are administering injections or carrying out point of care testing
  • Absence of a formal policy on environmental cleaning

To help prevent instances of healthcare-associated infections, the Center for Disease Control has created a new tool for assessing infection control programs and practices in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. If you don’t have a self-assessment tool for infection control, here is a resource developed by the Center for Disease Control for you to use.
