Each month HCI hold a complementary webinar for nursing homes hosted by one of our Quality and Safety Specialists. This month’s webinar, presented by Oonagh Gilvarry, Chief Technical Officer at HCI was on “Guidance on Infection Prevention and Control Leadership, Governance and Management”. Oonagh spoke about the learnings from COVID-19 in relation to IPC Governance and provided some guidance on the tools and processes nursing homes should implement to drive effective IPC Governance.
