First-Ever Infection Prevention Bootcamp a Success!

October 02, 2018

More than 125 individuals from hospitals, nursing homes, and ambulatory clinics joined the Wisconsin Hospital Association, MetaStar Inc., and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services for the inaugural Infection Prevention Bootcamp last week.  

Topics included best practice resources, practice standards, and rules and regulations for all settings, including cleaning and disinfection. Attendees learned how to assess their program, complete a risk assessment, and received an introduction to quality improvement with a hands-on demonstration of the Plan-Do-Study-Act tool.  

Participants learned more about the necessary surveillance for a variety of practice settings, as well as the use of National Health and Safety Network. Breakout session opportunities included construction risk assessment, long-term care final rules, and operating room inspections.
