Infection Control and Prevention

If you are licensed in the State of New York (or seeking licensure), your state-mandated course is New York: Infection Control and Prevention, including Sepsis

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are among the most common adverse events in healthcare. In addition to the personal consequences for patients, families, and professionals, HAIs add to the skyrocketing costs of the nation’s healthcare system. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, it makes sense to review the tried and true rules for infection control. For specific information about the pandemic, please see ATrain Education, “COVID-19: The Novel Coronavirus” on this website.

This course presents general infection control training for healthcare professionals, including responsibility for adhering to accepted principles and monitoring the performance of all for whom one is responsible. The course reviews the chain of infection, mechanisms of transmission, controls, PPE, and practices to protect both patients and workers.
