Infection Prevention and Control Program Audit

Addressing One of the Industry’s Top Challenges

Infection control remains the number one tag cited for skilled nursing facilities. To help you avoid potential penalties, or even a Directed Plan of Correction, PharMerica has launched an Infection Prevention and Control Program Audit, in which our Nurse Consultants offer targeted reviews on site. Our Nurse Consultants – who must successfully complete the CMS infection prevention course – provide comprehensive audits to evaluate your facility’s infection control efforts and compliance with F-880 through F-887* requirements.

*At this time, the audit does not include F-888.

  • F-880: Infection Prevention and Control Program (IPCP)
  • F-881: Antibiotic Stewardship Program
  • F-882: Infection Preventionist Qualifications/Role

Part 2: COVID Infection Control Requirements

  • F-885: Reporting: Residents, Representatives and Families
  • F-886: COVID-19 Testing – Residents and Staff
  • F-887: COVID-19 Immunization
