Healthcare-associated infections are among the most common complications during inpatient stays and are a threat to patient safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1 in 25 hospitalized patients acquires an infection while hospitalized. As a result, tens of thousands of lives are lost each year and costs are in the billions of dollars. Fortunately, best practice approaches have significantly reduced many of the most common infections. This course has been designed to help you to work toward a continued decrease in HAIs—and ideally their elimination—by reviewing the: • Causes • Risk factors • Current evidence-based practice strategies

Approximately 2.5 million patients develop a pressure injury each year. Up to 60,000 Americans die each year as a direct result of a pressure injury (PI). High incidence rates in hospitals may signal poor quality of care. The federal government considers pressure injury development a public health concern. When communication and documentation do not reflect diligent adherence to practice standards, pressure injuries can result in payment denial and may be a basis for legal action against facilities, physicians, and nurses.

Performance improvement has earned increased scrutiny from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Organizations are now required to collect and review specific data, simplify processes, and report findings to a governing board. The Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and accrediting guidance have always required collection of quality assurance and performance improvement data, but now surveyors are requesting documentation of the performance improvement (PI) efforts. The expectation is that leadership will engage frontline staff in the efforts to ensure the realistic expectations, effectiveness, and sustainability of projects. This course will walk you through the requirements, methodologies, and processes of a Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. The results of an effective program will: • Improve quality and safety • Increase employee and customer satisfaction • Build a collaborative environment among teams • Increase efficiency around processes
