Weekly poll: CDC and minimum expectations for outpatient infection control

By: October 31st, 2011 Email This Post Print This Post

Outpatient settings such as hospital-based outpatient clinics, nonhospital-based clinics and physician offices, ambulatory surgical centers, and many other specialized settings, have drawn the attention of CDC recommendations for safe care, especially in the area of infection control. Does your outpatient setting meet the following requirement as identified by the CDC Guide to Infection Prevention for Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care: “Assure at least one individual with training in infection prevention is employed by or regularly available to the facility.”

Take our OSHA Healthcare Advisor Weekly Poll and let us know.

When we discuss hand hygiene, is it very correct to use the term”hand washing”? Is it more correct to use the term “hand disinfection” before patient contact? Hand washing can indicate the use of soap and water, and washing means ‘cleaning” or removal of dirt only.
