    Presentation #1: Establishing a Highly Infectious Disease Assessment Hospital
    Jamie Swift
    In 2014 the world realized just how close we were to the threat of highly infectious diseases during the Ebola outbreak and subsequent spread to the United States. Hospitals across the country had to quickly prepare and train to respond to any patient who might arrive at their doorstep with Ebola, a disease most had never seen or treated. This presentation will focus on the work necessary to become an Assessment Hospital in the CDC and State Health Department's Highly Infectious Disease Treatment Network. These hospitals train and prepare to care for patients up to 96 hours until a diagnosis is confirmed. We will review the plans, training and ongoing communication necessary to ensure our team readiness at any time.

    Presentation #2: Sharp Injury Reduction Guide: Innovative Strategies for Success
    Mary Jo Bellush and Megan Kapolka
    Identification, prevention and management of needle stick injuries are controlled through education, safety awareness and continuous improvement. Sustainability of the program must include executive level buy in. All needle stick injuries require the manager to complete a problem sheet and meet with senior leadership. This process will ensure that standard work was followed, the root cause of the exposure was determined, and the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle was complete. The PDCA cycle identified staff knowledge gaps and led to targeted, department specific education particularly in surgical areas. Physicians were not aware of retractable safety devices and the standard work to use them. Physicians reported "breaking off" the safety needle cover due to an obstructed view of the surgical site. Under-utilization of neutral zones and the lack of safe hand to hand passing was also discovered. All physicians and ancillary medical staff were mandated to complete hands on education with safety devices and provided the opportunity to choose safety needle and syringe gauge and size to best suit their needs.

    Marketing campaigns can be used as a tool for effective communication to staff. The Marketing Department teamed with Safety and Occupational Health to develop innovative, eye catching campaigns to spark staff interest.

    Previous practice was reporting after the fact (lagging indicators) vs. programs to prevent sharp injuries (leading indicators). Ultimately all of these methods play a key role in sharp injury reduction.

    Infection Prevention & Management Associates, Inc., and Memorial Hermann Health System 

    The skills required for infection prevention and safe delivery of care are not simple.  One of the roles of the infection preventionists is to help colleagues change processes and change behavior, but many of us struggle with effectively coaching frontline healthcare workers to improve performance.  Infection Prevention leaders are also challenged to train and mentor early career infection preventionists.  This session will share strategies for providing effective feedback to others to improve performance.

    Reducing CAUTI through championing a patient safety culture

    Chaz Rhone, MPH, CICimage

    Infection Preventionist, Tampa General Hospital 

    The presentation will highlight the journey that Tampa General Hospital is on to reach zero CAUTI across the facility. While there will be mention of many technical interventions, each was done with the intent of making a lasting cultural impact to sustain the interventions as highlighted in the Agency for Healthcare Research Quality Toolkit for Reducing Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in Hospital Units: Implementation Guide. The target audience is any person involved with infection prevention, patient safety, or quality initiatives.
