Infection Prevention & Control

 

Key Components of Regulatory and Accreditation Requirements, Control Plans and Expectations

 

The importance of Infection Prevention & Control is often underestimated, as organizations see what appears to be low rates of infection when data is reported.  However, what is often not shared is the cost of those infections in patient outcomes, staff impact, and lost revenue.  Experts estimate that a single surgical site infection can cost more than $25,000 and may be as high as $90,000 when implants are involved.

Now think about what has been happening in the country with the impact of the extremely infectious disease, the Novel Coronavirus. With more than 5 million cases, and 173,000 deaths throughout the country that are still increasing, we have seen how rapidly an infectious disease can spread and how important infection prevention and control strategies are in protecting patients, staff, our neighbors and the economy.
