Recently the hierarchy of resources that need to be considered as infection prevention policies and procedures are reviewed and updated. Staff turnover, new leaders and a changing environment are all challenges for effectively deciding which laws, regulations, instructions or guidelines need to be followed by hospitals. We will identify the categories of infection prevention policies that need revision. We will review the latest infection prevention policy updates from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), discuss the latest updates to risk assessment for hospitals or medical office construction and renovation and introduce the AAMI Water Quality Standards for the Reprocessing of Medical devices.
