1 Zero Tolerance: The ICP, TSICP, and APIC Sue Sebazco, RN, BS, CIC Infection Prevention/Employee Health Director Arlington, TX

2 Objectives 1.Recognize the value TSICP and APIC provide for the individual ICP. 2. Discuss the strategic role members of TSICP and APIC contribute to infection prevention and control systems that promote zero tolerance and safe patient care.

3 Zero Tolerance What is aiming for “zero”? Where did it come from?

4 Infection Control in 1972 Profession the result of Staphylococcus aureus pandemic of the 1950’s The first ICPs Early Infection Control Programs

5 The ICP in 1980 Knowledge and Abilities Understand nursing procedures Isolation technique Aseptic technique Use of pt care equipment Adequate decontamination, disinfection, sterilization Hospital Infection Control Principles and Practices, Mary Castle 1980

6 The ICP in 1980 Knowledge and Abilities Microbiology Infectious diseases Epidemiology Administration and Supervision Environmental sciences Hospital Infection Control Principles and Practices, Mary Castle 1980

7 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 What Happened? More than 50 experts from across the continuum of healthcare, APIC leaders, and industry partners convened.

8 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 The Future of Healthcare “Every 30 or 40 years, something comes along that completely redefines everything about healthcare.” – Jeffrey Bauer: Healthcare Futurist

9 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 Top Healthcare Trends  Molecular medicine  Digital information technology  Diversity of society  Globalization of commerce  Emergence of new diseases  Rising consumer expectations

10 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 Top Healthcare Trends  Proliferation of payment systems  Unfunded mandates/political gridlock  Shift from surgical to Rx interventions  Alternative medicine  Increasing violence as a public health problem  Increasing gap between haves and have nots

12 FUTURES SUMMIT THEMES What Could Change the World as We Know It? Existing & Emerging Threats Infection Prevention in the Changing Dynamics of Healthcare The Future of Infection Prevention & Control

13 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 Infection Prevention in the Changing Dynamics of Healthcare “Infection control professionals are complicit in boxing themselves in because they still spend an enormous amount of time in the records room and in retrospective data analysis. Some people are comfortable with that, but it is unconscionable.” –Ken Segel, Pittsburgh Regional Healthcare Initiative

14 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 Infection Prevention in the Changing Dynamics of Healthcare “A lot of data collection and massaging, which have been a traditional role of ICPs, can be safely and better done by computers. This would allow ICPs to focus on more value-added activities, which would improve the entire healthcare process.” – Clay Dunagan, MD, VP. Quality, BJC Healthcare

15 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 Infection Prevention in the Changing Dynamics of Healthcare “It is important to look at the leadership component of infection control. We must transcend the discipline of infection control to embrace the entire organization. It is the leader’s job to make sure that happens.” – Clay Dunagan, MD, VP. Quality, BJC Healthcare;

16 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 The Future of Infection Prevention & Control  Technology is revolutionizing surveillance.  Increasingly care is being delivered outside of acute care and outside of ICUs, yet that is where we focus most of our surveillance and prevention activities. We must adapt. – Denise Cardo, MD, Director, DHQP, CDC; Georgian Ellis, VP. Operations, Shands Healthcare

17 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT – 2004 The Future of Infection Prevention & Control “We must deemphasize benchmarking. Being better than a bad benchmark is not the same as being good.” – Denise Cardo, MD, Director, DHQP, CDC

18 APIC FUTURES SUMMIT 2004 Key Themes  Prevention is the message  Promote zero tolerance for HAIs and other adverse events  Technology is the enabler

19 APIC’S PREFERRED FUTURE By 2012, APIC will be recognized as the leader in infection prevention and control by practitioners, policy makers, healthcare executives and consumers.
