A certified IPAC Consultant will apply the complex infection control standards to the operation of your foot care clinic by auditing policies and procedures, education and training, record-keeping, and physical attributes of your chiropodic 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.
