Product Description

Product Description

At any time in the United States, 1 out of every 25 hospitalized patients are affected by a health care–associated infection (HAI)—and infections are not limited to hospitals. This underscores the importance of adhering to infection prevention and control practices wherever health care is provided. This new book from Joint Commission Resources aims to help all types of health care organizations to prevent and control infections.
 
This book provides a compilation of downloadable and customizable checklists designed to help organizations across a range of settings build their own sustainable and program-specific infection prevention and control policies. In addition, the clinically sound checklists are specific enough for use by frontline clinical staff responsible for preventing and controlling the spread of infection.
 
The checklists comprise a complete arsenal against health–care associated infections across all accreditation settings. They cover a range of topics, including standard and transmission-based precautions, occupational health safeguards, environmental hazards and risks, and more. Plus, the checklists are based on Joint Commission and JCI standards, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention core practices, evidence-based guidelines, consensus documents, and other trustworthy expert sources. Count on these checklists to serve as reminders and refreshers for staff about their infection prevention and control training.
