Infection Prevention and Control

Why Infection Prevention and Control?

  • Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) continue to affect more than 2 million patients annually in the U.S. at a cost of more than $5.5 billion
  • Prevention of HAIs have significantly lowered patient infection risk in hospitals and other healthcare and group facilities
  • Surveillance and data collection on infection rates have become the basis for measuring the quality of care in hospitals

Infection Preventionist

Alysia Mosness, RN is our Infection Preventionist. She tracks and reports information that helps to prevent HAIs – e.g., surgical site infections, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, C.-difficle, multidrug-resistant organisms- in healthcare facilities by isolating sources of infections and limiting their spread. She systematically collects, analyzes, and interprets health data in order to plan, implement, evaluate, and disseminate appropriate public health practices. Additionally, she trains healthcare staff through instruction and dissemination of information on infection prevention and control practices.
