Select Another Department Infection Control
As part of Quality Improvement, Utilization Mangement, Infection Prevention and Data Analysis departments, our Infection Prevention department is responsible for implementing a comprehensive infection prevention and control program to improve care through monitoring, education and communication. Department staff coordinate a broad range of processes and activities, both in direct patient care and patient support areas. Staff activities focus on identifying and reducing the risks of acquiring and transmitting infections among patients, employees, physicians, volunteers and visitors. Special emphasis is placed on clinical practices, assessment and environmental issues. Staff members consult with hospital departments on infection control issues, and collaborate with hospital staff in forming and implementing infection control policies and procedures. Infection Prevention staff interface with the local Office of Public Health to ensure continuity of care and appropriate follow-up. Data is collected on an ongoing basis to measure specific outcomes that contribute to improving patient care and organizational performance.
