A new role for Infection Preventionist (IP) is emerging in large hospital systems. The Corporate Infection Preventionist Consultant (CIPC) provides consultative and educational services, facilitates the standardization of surveillance systems, policies, products, processes and structure. These are key components in the development of a strong national IP program. The CIPC serves as a facilitator to bring leadership and a collaborative working relationship among the facilities. The CIPC participates in a monthly "Full Book" readiness survey (Joint Commission and CMS standards). The team is comprised of IP, Accreditation and Regulatory Compliance, EOC, Medication Safety, Emergency Preparedness, Risk Management, Facilities and Life Safety. The team surveys the hospital in a three day period and revisits within 6 months to assist with action plans. Photos of IC issues and findings are prepared with TJC and CMS citations.
