Infection Prevention Issues • Infection Prevention Plan – being asked for by State and by Accrediting agencies • Be clear in your Infection Prevention Plan what resources you are using for your policies: • If you are STATE licensed • CDC • ST79 2017 - AAMI DOCUMENT – Sterilization Bible • If you are CMS certified, you must also follow CMS Rules – Infection Prevention Document for Compliance - AORN • Hand Hygiene – CDC – Know what source for your Hand Hygiene Posters and Guidelines – CDC or WHO

  4. More Infection Prevention • Hand Hygiene – Sorry to bring this up again • Have specific policy – outline your requirement for nails and other issues like jewelry • AORN has a great Policy • Must use soap and water or alcohol gel after the removal of GLOVES – EVERY TIME • Must comply with One Needle/One syringe and One vial – If not sure or if MD asks and you are not sure – ASK • Linen must be covered • Scrubs for Operating Rooms must be “facility-laundered) • Sharps Containers – must be secured except in OR proper because of need to have container close to Point of Use • Masks – regardless of where used – remove • Items in drawers must being containers

  5. Facts Related to Sterilization – NJDOH and AAMI • Major Repair All Mechanical equipment - Anything that is outside the scope of Preventive Maintenance and alters the performance of the equipment • If the situation meets this definition then 3 biologicals and Bowie Dick must be done prior to use. Note: differs with machine • IFU – Should be available for all machinery and for all items used • If you use – One Source – the staff must know how to access the information

  6. Expiration Dates • If you don’t understand, call the company • Check all new supplies for expiration dates • Make sure you understand what they mean • Peel Packs – may mean that the pouch must be sterilized by the date and then it is event related • If you do not understand the date or the way it is written – call the manufacturerTip Protectors – • Date is the date by which the protector must be used • If expiration is on outside of box and not on individual items (bandaids) must leave them in package • Other Issues – • Christmas Tree Connectors are single-use • Electrodes have a shelf life – once opened
