Facility and program assessments

Whether a facility is dealing with an outbreak, responding to a statement of deficiencies, or assessing an infection prevention and control (IPC) program following the hire of a new infection preventionist (IP), an onsite assessment by an independent consultant is frequently necessary.

Outbreak investigation

When a cluster of infections or outbreak occurs, APIC Consulting can work with your team to quickly send an outbreak specialist to the facility.

Outbreak investigations begin with an introductory call with the APIC Consultant, frequently on the same day as requested.  During the initial call, the APIC Consultant will discuss immediate actions to take prior to the onsite visit.  In many cases, the onsite visit can be scheduled as quickly as the next day.

Accreditation readiness

Because surveys are unannounced, it is crucial that your facility is continuously prepared for a review. Whether your facility is preparing for state licensing, looking ahead to an upcoming accreditation survey or developing a program to meet infection reporting requirements, APIC Consulting Services can assist.

Healthcare worker training and education

Infection preventionist mentoring

Do you have a newly hired infection preventionist (IP) at your facility who could benefit from a mentor’s experience in running a successful infection prevention department?

APIC Consulting can connect new IPs with subject matter experts to help answer infection prevention-related questions and assist with guidance toward the department’s strategic goals. The APIC Consultant will provide the IP with much-needed information to help improve practices, and help orient and familiarize staff with the infection prevention department’s roles and responsibilities.
