District education: Keeping your community clean, comfortable and infection free
(NF ADM, ALMC, DH, N, ES & HS)

The May District Meeting and Education is a two-part presentation on the goals, duties and responsibilities of infection prevention in your community. The responsibility of infection control no longer solely resides with clinicians focused on quality initiatives. Reducing the outbreak and/or spread of germs and diseases is an objective belonging to all employees in every department, including environmental and housekeeping staff.

The first part of the education will discuss environmental and housekeeping services' crucial role in helping to prevent the spread of infections in healthcare facilities. Discussion will include types of infections, the modes of transmission, and proper infection control cleaning procedures.

The second part will focus on DIA survey and CMS regulation requirements for environmental services and housekeeping departments. Discussion will cover infection control cleaning procedures, water temperatures, proper use of washing machines and dryers, appropriate use of personal protective equipment, facilities infection control evidence-based surveillance policy, chemical storage and hazardous items, oxygen storage and much more that is addressed during survey.
