Infection Prevention & Control Audit

Long-Term Care & Retirement


Comprehensive Audit

A certified Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) Consultant will check and observe your facility to check if the IPAC standards have been applied in the day-to-day operation of your long-term care/ retirement home, by auditing policies and procedures, education and training, record- keeping including immunization/screening of residents, and physical attributes of the facility, including resident care, environmental services, laundry, and dietary delivery.
This assessment includes a detailed written report of baseline IPAC measures in your facility. After the visit, you will have a great understanding of any gaps that may exist in your facility through our in- depth gap analysis. We will then create a customized action list to help you prioritize each and every recommendation.

Follow-up Audits

Follow-up audits are the most important step in ensuring IPAC compliance by staff. While the comprehensive audit provides baseline knowledge and understanding of the gaps, the follow-up audit demonstrates staff’s understanding and ability to apply IPAC principles appropriately, plus follow-up on closing the gaps based on recommendations provided. 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 and other IPAC measures that are in place. Education and feedback will be discretely provided during the audit, and upon completion, you will understand any gaps through the in-depth written report, plus recommendations for improvement.
