Practice Pearls for Meeting the Infection Control NPSG

The Joint Commission’s 2010 National Patient Safety Goal #7 aims to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections. This educational series, exclusively on QuantiaMD, is full of practical and simple suggestions on how clinicians and hospitals can meet the spirit and letter of the goal. Examining the goal’s elements, requirements, and expectations is important, since your hospital may soon need to prove to Joint Commission surveyors that these goals have been met.

"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation on turning bundles into measurable improvements.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise not only as a Physician, but as a Professor @ the University of Chicago School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois.  As well as, involvement in Infectious Diseases/Global Health and Chief Healthcare Epidemiologist and Medical Director in Infection Control & Clinical Quality @ the University of Chicago School of Medicine.

Monitoring documentation and actual performance will enhance accountability for staff regarding central line related infections.  To ensure compliance with regulations administration needs to take staffing into account, especially in ICUs.   

Again, an excellent lecture and power point slide presentation with up-to-date research on accountability toward positive changes in measurable improvement regarding central line infections.

Thanks,

Valerie"

"This was an excellent, well-organized succinct presentation on turning surgical site infection bundles and  protocols into meaningful performance measures.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise not only as a Physician, but as a Professor @ Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina.

Feedback - reports to staff, surgeon, OR staff etc. is key to change to take place. 

Calculating compliance related to antibiotics regarding choice, timing and discontinuing antibiotics is vital to TX.  We review a calculated hospital acquired infection as well as surgical site infections from the infection control nurse each quarter @ our medical staff meeting.  Automatic order sets for antibiotics to TX the organism with the correct RX.

Again, an excellent lecture and power point slide presentation with up-to-date research on the prevention of surgical site infection and  protocols into meaningful performance measures.

Thanks,

Valerie"
