Healthcare Infection Control and Response is a new program being offered by SPICE.
Funding for the project is made possible by Centers for Disease Control and North Carolina Division of Public Health, Communicable Disease Branch. The project focuses on assessment of infection control and response practices in nursing homes, hospitals, and outpatient and dialysis facilities. Participating facilities receive constructive feedback to improve infection control and response practices in their facilities. Finally, aggregate data will identify gaps to be addressed through educational programming to improve infection control and response.
- Conduct on-site assessments of facility’s infection control and response practices.
- Provide prompt, constructive feedback to participating facilities.
- Offer an on-line self-assessment and follow-up for facilities for which an on-site assessment cannot be scheduled.
- Based on aggregate data, create educational programming to address priority infection control and response problems in North Carolina.
