The CDC estimates 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) incur nearly $20 billion in healthcare costs every year. HHS, CMS, TJC, FDA, and CDC all have released memos, guidelines, standards and updates on combating this issue.
This program will cover the CMS infection control standards and antibiotic stewardship program, TJC’s antibiotic stewardship program requirements, and CDC’s Core Elements of Outpatient Antibiotic Stewardship. Our speaker will discuss common deficiencies in infection control and provide tips to ensure compliance. Attendees will learn about CDC and FDA’s updated procedures for cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing reusable medical devices, CDC’s Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit, CMS memos on infection control, safe injection practices, CRE, ISMP, and insulin pen memos.
