Infection Control in Long Term Care: 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 working in long term care 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 residents they care for - from dangerous pathogens in the long term care 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)
