Prevention & Control of Infections By Prof. OSSAMA RASSLAN Secretary General, Egyptian Society of Infection Control Overview

2 Accreditation standards for hospitals 1
I. Patient centered standards: Access to care & continuity of care (ACC) Patient & family rights (PFR) Assessment of patients (AOP) Care of patients (COP) Patient & family education (PFE) Overview

3 Accreditation standards for hospitals 2
II. H.C. Organization mgt standards: Quality mgt & improvement (QMI) Prevention & control of infections (PCI) Governance, leadership & direction (GLD) Facility mgt & safety (FMS) Staff qualifications & education (SQE) Management of information (MOI) Overview

4 Prevention & Control of Infections (Overview)
The Goal is: To identify & reduce the risks of acquiring & transmitting infections among: Patients, staff, doctors & others. Infections are either: Acquired in the hosp. or Infections brought into the hosp. Nosocomial infections may be: endemic (common cause) or epidemic (special cause) Overview

5 Prevention & Control of Infections (Overview)
covers a broad range of processes & activities, both in direct patient care & in patient care support, that are coordinated and carried out by the hospital. Overview

6 Prevention & Control of Infections (Overview)
The IC program may differ from org. to org. according to: Geographic location Patient volume Patient population served Type of clinical activities Number of employees Overview

7 Prevention & Control of Infections (Overview)
Effective IC programs have in common: Identified leaders Appropriate policies & procedures Staff education Coordination throughout the org. Overview

8 Prevention & Control of Infections (Overview)
Infection control is a quality mgt function. The IC Officer (ICO)and the QM professional work closely together. The specific role of the QMP in the IC program is to assist in standards interpretation & to ensure that data & interventions generated by the IC program are fully integrated into the performance improvement process. The QMP serves as a consultant to the ICO. Overview

9 A.Focus of the IC program (Standards)
The organization designs, implements & uses a coordinated process to reduce the risks of nosocomial infection in patients & H.C. workers. Processes are implemented for: 1. Cleaning , disinfection& sterilizing equipment 2. Use of disinfectants & disinfecting procedures 3. Availability & use of gloves, masks, soap & disinfectants 4. Waste disposal 5. Disposal of sharps & needles 6. Handling & disposal of blood & blood components Overview

10 A.Focus of the IC program (Standards)
Processes are implemented for: 7. Separating Pts. with communicable Ds.(Isolation) 8. Designating sites with significant inf. risk 9. Patients with indwelling catheters 10. Managing hemorrhagic patients 11. Laundry & linen management 12. Kitchen sanitation, food preparation & handling 13. Operation of the mortuary & the P.M. area 14.

14 C.Program Integration with QM (Standards)
The IC program is integrated with the overall process for assessing & improving performance 1. The org. tracks infection risks, rates & trends 2. Monitoring includes using indicators for infections issues that are epidemiologically important 3. Org. uses risk, rate & trend information to design & modify processes to reduce nosocomial inf. 4.Org. compares IC rates with other organizations 5. Results of inf. monitoring are communicated to staff, doctors & management 6. Org. reports inf. to appropriate public health agencies Overview

15 C.Program Integration with QM
Intent statement The org. must monitor nosocomial inf. risks, rates & trends The org. uses the information to improve the PCI activities & reduce nosocomial inf. as much as possible Rates & trends in similar organizations may help in making use of monitoring data (benchmarking) A committee from all professional groups in the org. is responsible for the monitoring activities Overview

16 D.Education of staff about program (Standards)
The org. provides education on IC practices to staff, doctors, patients, & others. 1. All staff receives an orientation to organization’s IC policies & practices 2.
