ASCs Face Unique Infection Prevention and Control Challenges

It is crucial for Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) to have a highly reliable Infection Prevention and Control Program in an effort to prevent procedural related infections and provide advanced care that they strive for.

Imagine a structured, easily implemented set of protocols that allow staff, patients and visitors to contribute to a safe, secure environment. And imagine someone else organizing it for you, making sure everything’s in place, all the training is done, and routine assessments are being made to make sure it’s all working.

Nod’s highly experienced, board certified infection control (CIC) practitioners understand the unique needs of ASCs when it comes to the challenge of maintaining a strong Infection Prevention and Control Program to compliment exceptional patient care. We will create, implement and sustain a robust Infection Prevention and Control Program that include categories such as:

  • Infection Control Training and Competency
  • Regulatory Survey Readiness and Action Planning
  • Healthcare Personnel Safety
  • Surveillance and Disease Reporting
  • Hand Hygiene
  • Aseptic Technique
  • Standard Precautions
  • High Level Disinfection Reprocessing
  • Central Sterile Processing
  • Infection Control Practices throughout Pre-Op/PACU
  • Intraoperative Infection Control Practices
  • Anesthesia related Infection Control
  • Environmental Cleaning

As a result, you’ll prevent and reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), as well as those from multidrug resistant organisms. Not only does that improve patient outcomes, it greatly mitigates the risk of regulatory citations.

Ready to get your Infection Prevention and Control protocols ready for today’s challenges — and tomorrow’s?

All you have to do is Nod.
