Infection Prevention and Control for Healthcare Facilities - OnDemand

Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) are complications of healthcare which affect, on average, 10 percent of patients admitted to hospitals worldwide, causing 100,000+ deaths annually. Each year, about 1 in 25 U.S. hospital patients is diagnosed with at least one infection related to hospital care alone; additional infections occur in other healthcare settings. Infection prevention and control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection. It is an essential, though often under- recognized part of the infrastructure of healthcare. This CEU defines HAI’s, reveals the common pathogens and their risk, explains the impact of flooring on HAI’s, addresses the main steps for infection prevention and control, and provides recommendations on both flooring selection and maintenance for healthcare facilities.
