Benefits of a Designated Infection Prevention Specialist

Having a designated employee to help monitor and implement your health care facility's infection prevention protocol is recommended by the CDC to reduce HAIs in clinical settings. This is also a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) requirement. A designated infection prevention specialist provides accountability for your current HAI prevention strategies, and streamlines communication for healthcare employees with questions and concerns. The best strategies for stopping the spread of microorganisms in your facility will be implemented by an infection prevention specialist. Your current infection control program will also be maintained and updated, so staff can implement best practices. Having someone in charge of your infection prevention program allows your facility to be flexible, and adapt easily to new challenges and hurdles.
