  • Description:
    Strict implementation of infection prevention and control (IPC) measures at healthcare facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic will minimize healthcare-associated transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19 among healthcare workers (HCWs) and patients, and allow for ongoing provision of essential health services. This tool has been developed for healthcare facilities and public health stakeholders in non-US healthcare settings to assess a facility’s IPC practices in identifying and safely managing patients presenting with symptoms consistent with COVID-19. This assessment will ideally be conducted by an external evaluator. However, it can also be used as a self-assessment. Facilities should use the results of the assessment to guide quality improvement activities. Depending on the section of the assessment, respondents will include facility administrator, IPC focal point, occupational health staff and/or director of nursing. A template work plan to address gaps identified during the assessment can be found at the end of the tool. www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/global-covid-19 Publication date from document properties. 249_IPC_FacilityAssessmentTool_20200925.pdf
