SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)-The Pandemic of 2020: On a Collison Course with U.S. Healthcare

(1.0 CH)

Presented by Evelyn Cook, RN, CIC
Associate Director SPICE - Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology

(Date of original presentation: November 10, 2021)

Description:

COVID-19 has overwhelmed the U.S. healthcare industry and left devastation in its wake. U.S deaths have now exceeded deaths from all wars and pandemics to date, numbering greater than 700,000.

Inadequate infection prevention training, education and oversight has led to deficient infection prevention practices, including but not limited to lack of hand hygiene and inappropriate use of personal protective equipment.

This program will help nurses recognize how all healthcare settings must have strong and robust infection prevention programs in place to address current and emerging infectious disease threats.

“Multidrug Resistant Organisms (MDROs) - An Ongoing Burden in Healthcare”

(1.0 CH)

Presented by Ashley Jackson, BSMT, MPH, CIC

(Date of original presentation: September 24, 2021)

Description:

Multidrug resistant organisms (MDROs) are a threat to health and can be spread in healthcare facilities.  The CDC emerging MDRO threat report in 2019 highlight types of organisms on the rise and ways to prevent transmission of these organisms.  Following infection prevention practices can reduce the spread of MDROs and prevent infections of MDROs.  It is also important to educate on ways the COVID-19 pandemic may influence the emergence of MDROs.  Negative implications including increased use of antibiotics throughout the pandemic may influence the potential rise of MDROs in healthcare.
