We don't have a infection control position at my facility, but we do have a risk assessment manager. But go figure..she is non-med...oh well.
Now the one thing I know is in addition to a very lengthy IR we nurses have to fill, we also have a book that we track all falls and skin issues located in our nurses med room. Anytime there is a fall or skin issue we fill out a simple tally sheet with name, room #, what the issue was (fall, skin tear, Eccymosis, exit seeking=going out of facility..etc), and date/time. That way my risk manager knows all that has happened in a week, make sure an IR was done, and can track these issues.
Then once a week, the risk manager, our admin, and the DON get together and go over this info, and the IR's to make sure they are right. And to discuss ways to try to lower the risks.
That is about all I know about it...but I hear the tracking log we fill out is very helpful for them! (it is simple and not too much extra time either to write out). That log is also helpful for our skin issues nurse to track issues and check them once weekly on the weekends
. (we chart no matter what the issue is in the chart and a separate skin care sheet every weekend).
Hope that was helpful for you...if I hear of any other things done at my facility I will let you know..but I think that basically covers my facilities deal...
