The Infection Control Assessment and Response Program from the BCK Consultants Team is a tool for healthcare and ASC organizations to improve their infection prevention and control programs with our infection control nursing and certified infection preventionist, and BCK Consultants have a team that provides a comprehensive evaluation of an organization's infection-control practices, policies, and procedures, and processes. Infection control is the primary responsibility of ASCs and must follow national guidelines. An ASCs Infection control practices must follow these guidelines 100 percent of the time or risk receiving citations from CMS, AHCA, and AAAHC. Accreditation agencies such as AAAHC and CMS have begun scrutinizing infection control practices at ASCs. In recent years, the focus of this scrutiny has been on hand hygiene and terminal, environmental cleaning, intravenous line disinfection, and hub/connector/port disinfection. During an annual infection control assessment, the ASC can identify its top priorities and develop written objectives. Staff education on Infection Control Measures and surveillance findings related to inadequate hand washing can be ranked as top priorities. Besides education and training, the ASC infection prevention designee should also evaluate the competency of the medical staff and the quality of central processing. Those who are responsible for implementing the infection control assessment and response program should perform these audits on a regular basis, and these evaluations can be done annually or more frequently. Larger ASCs employ an infection preventionist and have multiple people working to create the Infection Control Program. However, smaller independent ASCs often rely on a single person to develop an IP program. The infection preventionist wears many hats, so the training and education of other staff are important.
