What is Infection Control Training?

All of us have gotten sick or dealt with an infection at some point in our lives. That is just considered part of daily life.

However, did you know one of the highest risk places to get an infection is at healthcare facilities such as hospitals, medical offices, dental offices, etc.?

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are among the most common complications of healthcare services worldwide. These types of infections occur when a person seeks help for one illness or injury and during treatment at a healthcare facility acquires an unrelated illness that was not present at the time of admission. Common HAIs include: bloodstream infections, urinary tract infections, surgical site infections, pneumonia, etc.

Infection prevention and control is a set of practices designed to limit or eliminate the transmission of infections in all healthcare settings.

Does your organization have a infection control compliance program? All healthcare facilities should adopt infection control compliance programs to ensure that individual staff and the organization as a whole are adhering to industry standards governing infection prevention and control.

InfectionControlsTraining.com offers training and certification on Infection Control for an individual or an organization. A wide range of infection control topics are discussed in this training such as chain of infection, prevention and control, hand hygiene, personal protective equipment, environmental controls, sharps and injection safety, occupational health, sepsis, etc. Case studies are also provided to apply principles learned to real world situations.
