Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

22G Isolation Precautions and Environmental Safety

The Isolation Precautions and Environmental Safety APSS Blueprint outlines actionable steps healthcare organizations should take to successfully implement and sustain improvements in order to reduce healthcare-associated infection morbidity and mortality. Actionable steps to improve  isolation precautions and environmental safety as well as summaries of available evidence-based practice protocols are included:

  • Leadership checklist guide to determine whether current evidence-based guidelines are being followed in your organization
  • Performance improvement plan to follow if improvements are necessary
  • Clinical workflow for isolation precaution and environment screening standards across the continuum
  • Knowledge base on isolation precautions and environmental safety
  • How to educate patients and family members about isolation precautions and environmental safety
  • Isolation Precautions and Environmental Safety resource guide
  • Guidance on how to measure outcomes

The Blueprint is revised annually and is available free of charge on our website.

Hospitals who make a formal commitment to improve isolation precautions and environmental safety and share their successes on the PSMF website have access to an additional level of consulting services.
