American Medical Compliance specializes in infection control procedures and processes to minimize the potential risk of spreading infections in healthcare facilities. Each facility is responsible for ensuring their staff is minimizing the risk of exposure to potential infection. Knowing the proper protocols in sterilization practices and utilizing correct personal protective equipment is essential to lessen the risk of contracting infections.
Because lifestyle and environment are within a state of constant change, new diseases continually appear. This creates an urgency for protection from the threat of infectious diseases. Many new contagious diseases such as COVID-19, AIDS, Ebola, and Hantavirus have been identified in the past 30 years.
Advancements in world travel make the worldwide spread of disease a much bigger concern than in previous decades. Additionally, due to treatment and mutation, many infectious diseases have become more resistant to known treatment.
It’s of utmost importance to train your staff on proper infection control practices. The goal of an infection control program is to immunize against preventable diseases and establish precautions that can reduce exposure to infectious agents. Protect your staff and your practice by signing up for your annual infection disease and bloodborne pathogen training.
Properly regulate your office in the processes, procedures, and equipment necessary to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. With our experience in bringing facilities up to standards, AMC will work with you to meet your specific needs and fully train staff to ensure you are meeting all compliance regulations.
