Monitoring and Evaluating Compliance

A successful and compliant infection prevention and control program requires ongoing monitoring and evaluation. Using tools for evaluation, such as the CDC summary and companion checklist, as well as having an infection prevention and safety coordinator to provide ongoing oversight and management, are key elements. Developing a true culture of safety requires commitment to the program by all staff, as demonstrated by day-to-day infection prevention practices.
