Rethinking the Efforts of the Hospital Infection Prevention Program

Here is a recent message from APIC that caught my eye. It is a call to action of sorts.

We are in pressing times in infection prevention. More than ever, we are expected to implement and drive infection prevention efforts at our hospitals. The public expects preparedness for emerging and re-emerging diseases such as MERS and Ebola. For many infection prevention programs, the demands increase without a commensurate increase in resources and personnel.

As previously mentioned in a prior posting, accessible here, we need better methods for adequately calculating the staff and resource needs of a modern, hospital based infection prevention program.
