Preparation of local Infection prevention Plan

  • New HIQA recommendations (2017) require Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) teams to have detailed Infection Prevention plans that are prepared with reference to local quality and risk assessments, local audit results and surveillance data.
  • We can come on site and work with you to teach you the skills to develop your own local Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) programme and plan.
  • We will ensure you have the skills and a template so you can then update this plan going forward.

Designing local Infection Prevention and Control Programme

  • We can assist with development of your Infection Prevention programme and advise on programme content and how to prioritise components of the programme based on local resources and local risks.
  • We can teach you how to best evidence compliance with Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Joint Commission International (JCI) standards.

Designing a Surveillance Programme for healthcare associated infection

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 surveillance systems.
