Introduction

Here’s what your peers are saying about this title:
Construction and Renovation
"Construction and Renovation projects within the healthcare setting are a complicated and lengthy process. This chapter provides the IP with the necessary checklists that will ensure all parties within the multidisciplinary team are involved during all phases of the projects.

Long-Term Care
"To assist with meeting new CMS and Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI) mandates, the LTC checklists include a hand hygiene observation tool, a simple practice gap analysis assessing antibiotic stewardship (AS) practices, an infographic describing AS that can be used for staff, resident, and visitor education, an environmental cleaning checklist to promote optimal environmental hygiene, two inter-facility infection control transfer forms to be used during transition of care, a medical care referral form to assist when communicating a potential infection to a medical care provider, and additional references. These concise tools and checklists can aid both the infection preventionist and front-line staff with their IPC program interventions.

Precautions
"The bulk of the chapter discusses supply and equipment cleaning including isolation rooms. Pediatrics addresses all childhood communicable diseases. OR subchapter includes surgical classification which all IPs need to know. Food Services reviews the process of foodborne outbreaks. Central Sterile gets more involved in the sterilization and monitoring process. Dental Clinic is a new spotlight with the focus on what PPE to use with patient care. Pest management is also discussed during intense terminal cleaning to include bed bugs, maggots and lice. The common theme throughout the chapter is thorough cleaning and use of PPE."
