Product Description

Product Description

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are approximately 1.7 million new cases of infections that are acquired by patients during their stay in hospitals every year. Of these, approximately 99,000 result in death (although there may be other factors besides infection), making health care–associated infections (HAIs) one of the top ten causes of death in the United States. From a business perspective, this translates into a cost of approximately $4.5–$6.5 billion a year for hospitals to combat these infections. Reducing the risk of HAIs is the responsibility of all staff within a healthcare organization—this includes both direct and indirect patient care staff. The challenge requires the prevention of infections that can be acquired in a healthcare organization and introduced to the organization by patients and visitors. 
 
During these 60-minute live activities, expert faculty will examine the impact of infections on healthcare delivery systems and the implementation of strategies that can reduce or prevent the spread of infections. We will also focus on changes from The Joint Commission that have occurred, or will shortly go into effect, including the deletion and consolidation of hospital requirements related to infection control, as well as The Joint Commission’s brand new scoring methodology (SAFER matrix). 
 
Objectives
After completing this activity, the participant should be able to:
  1. Identify the challenging standards related to the control of infection
  2. Identify methods to reduce or prevent the transmission of infection.
  3. Describe the new Joint Commission scoring methodology.
Target Audience
This activity is relevant to those responsible for the prevention and control of infections, including managers and supervisors, along with training, infection control, patient safety and quality improvement professionals.
 
“We purchased JCR’s Infection Control Webinar Series for our health care system. The first webinar was great. It covered exactly what the Joint Commission surveyor covered while onsite. It’s always good to have additional tools to help maintain compliance and ensure quality and safe patient care.”
