Patient Safety is a core element of any Infection Prevention and Control Program. As healthcare providers, it is imperative to put the patient at the center of their clinical care. This includes actively engaging patients and healthcare providers alike to reduce the incidence of HAIs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement have published vast resources to help improve any healthcare facility’s patient safety program. While most infections can be prevented thru basic interventions, when the unfortunate happens and an infection is transmitted, it’s critical that healthcare facilities are prepared to transparently communicate to patients and other external stakeholders. These resources are designed to help healthcare facilities and providers ensure that nothing compromises the safety of the patient during the delivery of healthcare services.
