Data collection: A checklist is used for direct observation of physicians, nurses, and technicians in each peri-operative area to evaluate multiple aspects of Hand Hygiene Practices per CDC/WHO guidelines and as evaluated by CMS and accreditation evaluators during surveys.
Safe Injection Practices Benchmarking

A 2017 study reported by the ISMP demonstrated that healthcare practitioners are still violating best practices associated with safe injections and are placing patients at risk of serious infection.
Data Collection: A checklist is used for direct observation of physicians, nurses, and technicians in each peri-operative area to evaluate multiple aspects of injection Practices per CDC/WHO standards and as evaluated by CMS and accreditation by evaluators during surveys.
