Infection Control – Requirements of Participation

FTag 880 to 883

Your infection control program is an important part of your Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement Program (QAPI). The new requirements of participation contain specific information related to infection control tasks, policy development, the implementation of an Infection Preventionist and a new investigative protocol.  This workshop will include a review of these new requirements as well as what systems and processes should be implemented as a result, including how to incorporate your policies into your QAPI program. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in exercises and receive many tools related to system and process development.

1. Review and discuss the new CMS interpretive guidelines for Infection Control including the requirements for immunization, Infection Preventionist and Antibiotic Stewardship.
2. Review the components of a good infection control program.
3. Analyze your current infection control program and implement a plan to ensure compliance with the new guidance.
4. Develop QAPI measures for infection control.
