  • Preparing for Your Hepatitis A Outbreak - Coming Soon to Your Neighborhood!

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1 credit offered

    Several states have been involved in an outbreak of Hepatitis A (HAV), concentrated in populations of homeless, drug users, and contacts of those individuals. The rapid growth of the outbreak once it infiltrates local communities has been overwhelming local resources and has required measures to attempt containment and control that differ from those previously used in HAV outbreaks. This presentation will describe lessons learned in this outbreak, providing possible assistance to IPs, public health workers, and communities that will experience this outbreak in the future.

  • Infection Prevention Practices on the Healthcare Frontier: Emerging Models of Ambulatory Care

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1 credit offered

    The dramatic shift of healthcare delivery to outpatient settings is accelerating. Within three years, it is expected that revenue from ambulatory or outpatient care will nearly double the revenue of inpatient acute care for most hospital systems (Truven, 2016). This session will examine projected growth over the next decade, as derived from analytical sources. This growth is across broad specialties and in varied settings including micro-hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, freestanding emergency departments, urgent care, and other outpatient locations. Advanced surgeries once thought to only be within the realm of inpatient acute care hospitals and involve several days of post-operative stay, are now being done on the same day with minimally-invasive techniques. This presents clear benefits as to patient experience and may limit risk of infection, but also this creates diverse challenges for the IP, such as lack of staff knowledge and insufficient resources to properly review practices. The need for oversight is highlighted by several ambulatory outbreaks in the last 40 years. Some of the earliest were Hepatitis B infections in outpatient hemodialysis patients, published in 1976. There have been many preventable transmissions of Hepatitis C due to unsafe injection practices. In addition, other organisms such as nontuberculous mycobacteria, Group A Strep, MRSA, Tsukamurella, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, and Streptococcus salivarius have caused infections. In the past, IPs could focus efforts on one main hospital but now they may be tasked with multiple facilities spread across broad geographies. Leading larger health systems have devoted staff specifically to ambulatory or outpatient settings. APIC and other organizations including CDC, ASHE, and SHEA have developed tools and other resources to assist. This presentation will review key findings and guidance from these multiple sources.

  • 2017 Heroes of APIC

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    Collaborating to connect dots and save lives & Creating a foundation to support infection prevention excellence



    IP Competency: Novice, Proficient, Expert

    Duration: 60 minutes      Available through: 12/31/2019

     

    Description:   

    Presentation #1: Collaborating to connect dots and save lives
    Angela Rupp, MT, MS, CIC, FAPIC
    Director, Infection Prevention & Control
    Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

    Elaine Whaley, MSN, RN, CIC, CPHQ
    Director Infection Control, Texas Children's Hospital


    In February 2016, Elaine Whaley's Texas-based pediatric hospital identified a cluster of Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) among their pediatric non-cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Just a few weeks later, Angela Rupp's Chicago-based pediatric facility also identified a B. cepacia cluster. Both professionals sent B. cepacia isolates to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Research Laboratory for verification and genotyping, and the laboratory responded with two valuable pieces of information: the isolate was not the same B. cepacia organism previously seen in either hospital's patients. Due to confidentiality, however, the Foundation could not disclose facility names.

    Fortunately, Whaley and Rupp had connected years before through the Children's Hospital Association (CHA) infection prevention directors' forum, and worked together during the Ebola crisis. "Knowing each other let us focus our efforts much more quickly," Rupp said.

    By comparing same or similar supplies and medications used at their facilities, Whaley and Rupp quickly and efficiently identified a common, contaminated product. Whaley and Rupp's findings subsequently resulted in an FDA recall, preventing countless cases of infection.

    Presentation #2: Creating a foundation to support infection prevention excellence
    Wendy Kaler, MPH, CIC
    Infection Preventionist, Dignity Health

    Marcy Maxwell RN, BSN, CIC
    Infection Control Coordinator, Dignity Health


    The Dignity Health Infection Prevention team has systematically built an infection prevention and control (IPC) structure that supports infection prevention programs and improved patient outcomes in 39 facilities across three states. Despite differences in geography, culture, and professional experience levels across their facilities, the team has successfully standardized critical infection prevention processes and systems, enabling Dignity Health to achieve key CMS goals and internal infection-reduction targets.

    The team started by providing policy templates to their local facilities, and progressed to evidence-based policies that each facility is mandated to adopt. The team also created an Infection Prevention Council to develop outcomes-driven action plans that supported policy implementation.

    Participation in the CMS Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Networks (HEN) has given the Dignity Health team additional support, motivation and resources. To audit and coordinate the HEN initiatives, the team successfully introduced "MeasureVentionists" - specially trained nurses who provide peer-to-peer bedside coaching. Working together, MeasureVentionists and Dignity Health infection preventionists reduced the system's CAUTI and CLABSI rates by 40 percent.

    Presentation #1: Establishing a Highly Infectious Disease Assessment Hospital
    Jamie Swift
    In 2014 the world realized just how close we were to the threat of highly infectious diseases during the Ebola outbreak and subsequent spread to the United States. Hospitals across the country had to quickly prepare and train to respond to any patient who might arrive at their doorstep with Ebola, a disease most had never seen or treated. This presentation will focus on the work necessary to become an Assessment Hospital in the CDC and State Health Department's Highly Infectious Disease Treatment Network. These hospitals train and prepare to care for patients up to 96 hours until a diagnosis is confirmed. We will review the plans, training and ongoing communication necessary to ensure our team readiness at any time.

    Presentation #2: Sharp Injury Reduction Guide: Innovative Strategies for Success
    Mary Jo Bellush and Megan Kapolka
    Identification, prevention and management of needle stick injuries are controlled through education, safety awareness and continuous improvement. Sustainability of the program must include executive level buy in. All needle stick injuries require the manager to complete a problem sheet and meet with senior leadership. This process will ensure that standard work was followed, the root cause of the exposure was determined, and the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle was complete. The PDCA cycle identified staff knowledge gaps and led to targeted, department specific education particularly in surgical areas. Physicians were not aware of retractable safety devices and the standard work to use them. Physicians reported "breaking off" the safety needle cover due to an obstructed view of the surgical site. Under-utilization of neutral zones and the lack of safe hand to hand passing was also discovered. All physicians and ancillary medical staff were mandated to complete hands on education with safety devices and provided the opportunity to choose safety needle and syringe gauge and size to best suit their needs.

    Marketing campaigns can be used as a tool for effective communication to staff. The Marketing Department teamed with Safety and Occupational Health to develop innovative, eye catching campaigns to spark staff interest.

    Previous practice was reporting after the fact (lagging indicators) vs. programs to prevent sharp injuries (leading indicators). Ultimately all of these methods play a key role in sharp injury reduction.
