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.
Our investigators will conduct an independent assessment and develop a written report of findings and recommendations. An exit interview onsite will guide the implementation team in next steps, prior to the receipt of the report.
APIC Consultants have specific outbreak investigation experience in a variety of health care settings such as acute care, long-term care, ASCs, physician offices, dental offices and more.
