Basic Infection Control and Prevention Plan for Outpatient Oncology Settings
This white paper has been developed for outpatient oncology facilities to serve as a model for a basic infection control and prevention plan, containing policies and procedures tailored to meet minimal expectations of patient protections, as described in the CDC Guide to Infection Prevention in Outpatient Settings.
The model plan focuses on the core measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases in outpatient oncology settings, but is not intended to address facility-specific issues or other aspects of patient care.
It states that standard precautions, such as hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette, safe injection practices and safe handling of potentially contaminated equipment or surfaces in the patient environment represent the minimum infection prevention measures.
