CMS has issued a new infection control survey and it’s critical that hospitals know and understand them so they can be in compliance. A new book just published by AHC Media includes compliance tips and insights from experts and background articles and case studies on the areas of CMS interest. 

These new requirements are now effective and can lead to issue citations in unannounced visits. “Mastering the CMS Hospital Infection Control Survey” gives you tips and insights to ensure CMS compliance and “teach the test” to your colleagues. This book covers a wide array of infection control measures in the hospital including: hand hygiene, environmental cleaning, reprocessing, patient isolation measures, injection safety and antibiotic stewardship.

Here’s a look at the table of contents and the complete preface, both of which are a terrific insight into this new guide’s many offerings.

Hospital infection control programs need more resources to meet daily demands and still have a level of surge capacity, evidenced by the recent Ebola outbreak. This information can benefit U.S. hospitals, infection preventionists, hospital epidemiologists, quality professionals, risk management, employee health, and compliance professionals.

 “Mastering the CMS Hospital Infection Control Survey” is now available and here’s where you can get your copy.
