Patient Safety Tool: Kaiser Permanente's Infection Control "Plus" Measures

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente offers a complimentary infection control toolkit to serve as a resource for infection preventionists assessing or expanding infection prevention programs.

The 2013 Infection Prevention and Control "Plus" Measures Toolkit, developed in 2013 by Sue Barnes, RN, leader of the national infection prevention and control program at Kaiser Permanente, includes infection prevention practices and supporting evidence.

The toolkit includes standard prevention measures and "plus" measures — additional measures identified by the KP national IP program manager through literature review, conferences and other sources. The toolkit is not all inclusive and is not meant to suggest the interventions are mandatory, according to Kaiser Permanente.

Download the infection prevention and control "plus" measures toolkit for use in your own facility.
