Late Breaker: Infection Control in the News - Lessons, Questions and What Next
LATE BREAKER: INFECTION CONTROL IN THE NEWS. LESSONS, QUESTIONS AND WHAT NEXT?
Recent infection control breaches indicate systematic problems in infection control compliance and suggest a need to redouble efforts by all in improving the system. This session will review recent events, causes (root cause analyses), process improvement opportunities, and reporting requirements with a patient safety theme and a risk management focus. The CDC will describe outbreak protocols and the OSAP audience will have a conversation on how to manage complex, rapidly-changing situations from a variety of stakeholder groups and how to better assure compliance with recommended infection control recommendations. there are lessons learned from the Oklahoma, West Virginia, New Mexico and other incidents to better explain the process breakdown and factors that can be "insulators" (e.g look for the single points of failure, personality dependent systems like only one person knowing how to work the sterilizer). The audience will gain the knowledge that they have the tools to implement additional measures and standards.
