Q&A FROM MEETINGS:

Question: According to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, a lapse is defined as "a deviation from the IPAC standard of care, resulting in possible infectious disease transmission to patients, clients or staff through exposure to blood, body fluids, secretions, excretions, mucous membranes, non-intact skin or soiled items.”

  • What do you believe is bringing about the increasing awareness regarding IPAC lapses?
  • What can we do as Infection Control Professionals to inform the public of what this all means in regards to their health and safety?
  • How will/have you counsel those who question the safety of different facilities i.e. Doctor’s offices, hospitals?
  • Do you have any resources to share regarding IPAC lapses?

Question: When do you test for Clostridium difficile infection?
