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 required to lessen the likelihood of contracting infections.
Because lifestyle and environment is within a state of constant change, new diseases continually appear. This creates an urgency for protection from the threat of infectious diseases. Many of these new contagious diseases have been identified in the past 30 years such as AIDS, Ebola, and Hantavirus. Advancements in world travel where many more people are traveling between continents 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 is of utmost importance to train your staff on proper infection control practices to reduce the occurrence of infectious diseases. The goal of an infection control program is to immunize against preventable diseases and define and implement precautions that can prevent/reduce exposure to infectious agents. Protect your staff and your practice by signing up for your annual infection disease and bloodborne pathogen training.
As a healthcare worker, it is your responsibility to ensure that your office is being properly regulated in processes, procedures, and equipment meant to lessen the opportunity to spread infectious diseases. American Medical Compliance is experienced in bringing entire facilities up to standards and we will work with your specific needs, equipment, and staff to make sure you are completely within compliance with regulations.
