There are 11 IPC standards in the JCI Infection Prevention and Control Section- Each standard is listed with a number of measurable elements and a description of the intent of the standard.
JCI standards focus on a risk based approach to IPC and require organisations to monitor patient outcomes such as HCAI rates and outbreaks which are then investigated and examined to identify risks and shape the IPC programme.
We can assist you in identifying risks and integrating your IPC plan and Infection Prevention programme into your hospital's quality improvement and patient safety programme.
Organisations need to monitor and measure their performance using a range of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). These include compliance audit results for practice such as Hand hygiene and Invasive device management as well as patient outcomes such as surgical site surveillance and blood stream infection surveillance data.
We can assist you with prioritising surveillance and the development of both point prevalance surveys and ongoing prospective surveiilance systems.
