Nurses are already letting us know how important infection prevention and control is in their care settings. Read more to learn what your colleagues are sharing.

Any guide has to be a living guide – to evolve to the situation.

Need to know what you are supposed to do; but also need to know what you can do and still be safe re: PPE; discrepancy between what I have on hand and what is best practice; how do I advise someone when I know that I am not following best practices

Very unsure about practice.  With supply chain issues, variability on products and how they are used. When wipes are out of supply, then spray is introduced then staff are unsure about wet times. No one seems to own changes to standards of practice that had been in place for years

If I can prevent one infection with a process improvement this can be shared and move through the rest of the facility.  This is exciting!
