Preparing for increased oversight of

infection prevention & control programs

The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed the U.S. healthcare system — and no one has been more affected than nursing homes. As the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services resumes onsite surveys and flu season approaches, it is imperative for nursing homes to prepare for increased oversight of their entire Infection prevention and control programs — beyond COVID-19 — to avoid penalties and stay compliant. During this webinar we will highlight what is on the legislative horizon and discuss how to use data found within the EHR to identify early onsets of infectious disease, establish best practices for antibiotic stewardship surveillance, and simplify reporting requirements outlined in the CMS Requirements of Participation (RoPs).

Learning objectives:

· Identify early warning signs of infectious disease, days before testing results are available

· Understand the components that the CDC’s Antibiotic Stewardship requirements have on IPC programs

· Learn strategies to develop and maintain a successful Antibiotic Stewardship Program
