Take a Look from the Other Side! Hospital Administration and Infection Prevention

The Executive Conference Room: Safety Starts at the Top
I learn a lot when I collaborate with excellent people on the other side of the administrative fence. The result is always greater than the sum of the individual parts.

Thank you to Rebecca Vokes (MHA) and Professor Gloria Bazzoli of the VCU College of Health Professions - Health Administration.

We just published an invited review on an administrative perspective on infection prevention, management and change.  The paper is accessible here and was published in Current Infectious Diseases Reports.

Bottom line, change must be deliberate and disciplined.  The highest standards of safety start at the top, without executive oversight, support and resources-no infection prevention program will reach it stated goals.
