Marcia offers consulting on a wide variety of infection prevention issues as well as teaching for APIC, the Association of Professionals in Infection Control, Inc. Marcia served on the Board of Directors for APIC 2009- 2012. I am board certified in Infection Control, 1983-2013.
Marcia has 30 years of experience in all aspects of infection prevention and control in hospitals and ambulatory settings. She is a new surveyor for the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
Marcia's interests include implementation of the CMS Ambulatory Surgery requirements; injection safety; cleaning, disinfection and sterilization in the outpatient setting; establishing an ambulatory infection control program and mentoring. I also am interested in all aspects of hospital infection control and have many years of experience in program development, surveillance, outbreak investigation, infection reduction, education and regulatory compliance.
This one and half hour presentation will cover the CMS & ASC Surveyor's Infection Control Worksheet (ICWS). This survey sheet encompasses everything that an Infection Preventionist would need to oversee and manage regarding an infection prevention program within the ambulatory surgery center setting. CMS has mandated elements of an IP program to include a written IC plan, have oversight by a qualified professional, following recognized national guidelines, consisting of a IC surveillance system and evidence of ongoing training of the staff & providers. All of these issues will be discussed within this presentation.
Understand the elements of infection prevention and control in the ambulatory settings surveyed by CMS.
Identify common problems, gaps and practice deficiencies related to infection prevention detected via the ICWS.
Handouts to be included:
- Notetaking version of the PowerPoint presentation
