Standard Precautions Audit Tools for Monitoring Compliance with Standard Infection Control Precautions (SICPs)

What are Standard Precautions?

Standard precautions were previously called Universal Precautions.

They refer to a group of simple actions that should be undertaken

✔ for every patient,
✔ in every healthcare setting.

By implementing standard precautions, these basic actions become MUST DO tasks, and ensure consistent, safe patient care.
