Maintaining an infection-free environment in a hospital setting is a growing challenge. Management of multi-drug resistant organisms including Clostridium difficile disease (CDI) is high priority for infection prevention and control departments. In addition, CMS has mandated surveillance and reporting of various infections necessitating the infection preventionist to have a sound knowledge of surveillance and reporting.
Keeping in compliance with regulatory agencies such as CMS and The Joint Commission (TJC)results in a lot of time spent writing policies and procedures.
