A certified IPAC Consultant will apply the complex infection control standards to the operation of your endoscopy clinic by auditing policies and procedures, education and training, record-keeping, and physical attributes of your clinic, including your sterilization centre. This assessment provides a verbal on-site confirmation and an in-depth written report of baseline administrative controls as they pertain to infection control requirements. After our visit, you will have a better understanding of any gaps in your practice through our in-depth gap analysis, and our customized action list will help you prioritize the recommendations. The Office Assessment mirrors the Public Health Inspection checklists.
Our Personalized Policy and Procedure Manual for Endoscopy Offices follows governing body guidelines and covers a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, administrative controls, hand hygiene, routine practices, and reprocessing. Our policies and procedures are delivered as a hard-copy spiral bound manual that is easy to keep on hand for reference.
Practice Audits are the most important step for ensuring compliance. While the General Office Assessment and the Sterilization Centre Assessment are the groundwork for knowledge and reprocessing area set-up, the actions of staff demonstrate an application of infection control principles and is a main component of a Public Health inspection. An IPAC Consultant will evaluate staff actions anonymously before, during, and after patient care, with a special focus on tasks such as hand-washing, using personal protective equipment appropriately, and proper cleaning and handling of equipment. Upon completion, you will understand any gaps through our in-depth written report.
Cross contamination can pose significant infection risk to patients and is the central focus of Public Health inspections. An IPAC Consultant will examine the plans for your reprocessing areas and identify changes to the physical layout of the Sterilization Centre in order to be compliant with Public Health requirements. Upon completion, you will know what you need to incorporate into your plans or existing sterilization centre to be able to provide a space to safely and effectively reprocess instruments.
