New from JCR: ‘Infection Prevention and Control in Nonacute Care Settings’
Resources dedicated solely to infection prevention and control (IPC) in nonacute care settings are limited. A new book from Joint Commission Resources (JCR) — “Infection Prevention and Control in Nonacute Care Settings” — highlights IPC challenges in home care organizations.
The book outlines Joint Commission IPC requirements for nonacute care settings and focuses on where organizations struggle, providing timely, accessible solutions. Key topics include:
- Developing a robust IPC program.
- Identifying, assessing, and mitigating IPC risks in the nonacute care setting.
- Cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing medical equipment and other tools.
- Handling infectious disease emergencies.
