The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today announced the availability of free, downloadable Quick Observation Tools (QUOTs) for infection control to help healthcare facilities quickly identify infection prevention deficiencies and take corrective action in real time to protect patients from healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
Approximately 1 in 25 people are diagnosed with healthcare-associated infections each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Therefore, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) is putting the spotlight on the importance of infection prevention and actions the healthcare community can take to improve patient safety.
