Infection Control in Healthcare: Regulatory and Administrative Measures

OVERVIEW:

Reducing the number of healthcare - associated infections (HAIs) is a complex issue and a number of government agencies and healthcare organizations have developed guidelines and standards to prevent the transmission of dangerous pathogens.

This program - the second in a five-part series on infection control- provides healthcare professionals with an understanding of administrative and regulatory measures from the CDC, OSHA and the Joint Commission that are designed to protect healthcare workers - and the patients they care for - from dangerous pathogens in the healthcare environment.

OBJECTIVES:

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Identify four federal agencies that work to prevent transmission of HAI
  • Describe three approaches the Joint Commission uses to promote infection control in healthcare facilities
  • Define a "sentinel event
  • Explain the benefit of reporting infection transmission data to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN)
This program also includes workbooks that can be ordered separately.
