1 HUMBER NHS FOUNDATION TRUST INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL STRATEGY Introduction Healthcare associated infections (HCAI) continue to be a major cause of patient harm and although nationally there have been significant reductions achieved in the number of patients developing serious infections such as MRSA (Meticillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) bacteraemia and Clostridium difficile, the rates of other HCAI have risen due to the emergence of resistant organisms in healthcare settings. It is therefore important that the reduction of HCAI remains a high priority on any patient safety agenda. The provision of an Infection Prevention and Control Strategy is an essential requirement for any organisation. Its purpose is to; Clarify the outcomes that they wish to achieve; Determine the broad priorities that will be adopted to achieve those outcomes; Identify the ways that progress will be measured. This strategy aims to set out the direction of all infection prevention and control activity undertaken within or on behalf of Humber NHS Foundation Trust over the next two years. It also is designed to ensure compliance to Care Quality Commission (CQC) Outcome 8 (Regulation 12), Cleanliness and Infection Control standards and to achieving local and national targets. 2. The Trust Vision Caring, Compassionate, Committed As outlined in the Humber NHS Foundation Trust Organisational Plan the trust affirms its commitment to being a leading provider of integrated health services. It also aims to be recognised for the care, compassion and commitment of all staff. In order to support the delivery of this vision and to prevent any avoidable harm to any patient due to infection we aim to focus on 6 main areas of improvement as highlighted below. The proposed objectives are intended to focus on the continuing requirement to reduce HCAI and to firmly embed infection prevention in to everyday practice to keep patient, visitors and staff safe. 3. Strategic Priorities Priority 1: Patient Safety The safety of every patient we care for is our number one priority We are proud to report that we have an excellent track record on preventing HCAI and continue to perform well against both national and locally agreed targets. Achievements over the last year have included; 0 patients reported as developing a trust apportioned MRSA blood stream infection. Prevention and Control Strategy Page 1

2 0 trust apportioned Clostridium difficile infection. An improvement in staff hand hygiene compliance (98% compared to 95% in ). In line with the NHS Operating Framework , we want to ensure that the incidence of serious HCAI continues to remain within or better than agreed thresholds and that cleanliness in our healthcare premises meets the highest standards. We acknowledge that the public rightly expect healthcare environments to be clean and safe. Service users need to be confident that all our premises and equipment used in the delivery of healthcare will exceed minimum standards of cleanliness and be appropriate for purpose. Over the next 2 years we aspire to; Comply fully with all requirements of the Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance. Provide a patient environment that is clean and acceptable to patients, visitors and staff. Achieve all national and locally agreed infection prevention and control targets. Develop a multi-disciplinary approach to antimicrobial stewardship. Priority 2: Quality & Clinical Governance We are committed to developing a robust governance framework which monitors the quality of all our infection prevention and control activity Sustainable reductions in HCAI like MRSA and Clostridium difficile require the proactive involvement of every member of staff working across all healthcare settings. All staff have a role to play in reducing HCAI and making that contribution is crucial. To ensure that all staff are aware of their individual responsibilities it is extremely important to ensure that there are effective structures, processes and systems in place to monitor the quality of all infection prevention and control activity, providing assurance to the public about the quality of care that is being delivered and the improvements that are being made. A trust wide review of operational structures has recently been undertaken and have now entered the final stages of implementation. We are committed to ensuring that teams at all levels within the organisation are able to define their specific roles and responsibilities, outcome measures and infection performance indicators across their workforce. To support this over the next 2 years we will; Ensure there is corporate ownership of the infection prevention and control agenda. Prevention and Control Strategy Page 2

3 Develop a robust infection prevention and control governance reporting structure in line with local and national requirements. Improve clinical and managerial engagement in infection prevention and control improvement work by establishing and managing an operational framework which monitors and assures improvement on HCAI. Priority 3: Patient Experience We are committed to keeping patients and the public informed about all aspects of their care and ensuring they are involved whenever possible in key decisions Engaging with patients, users and carers is essential in the planning, designing and delivery of any care. Benefits include a more responsive service, improved patient outcomes, improved patient experience and shared decision making. We would like to increase the level of patient and public involvement in infection prevention and control matters in order to share ideas and become more patient focused, improving the overall patient experience. Over the next 2 years we will; Improve the quality and availability of patient information available. Create opportunities to hear patients and family members describe their perspective of infection prevention and control practice within the hospital care experience in order that improvements can be made. Promote patient involvement in all national infection related patient safety initiatives such as World Hand Hygiene Day. Priority 4: Clinical Effectiveness We are committed to improving the care we provide by continually striving for excellence As a trust we are committed to developing excellence in the quality of care we deliver to our patients. We want to deliver care that is evidence-based and consistently applied in all areas across the trust. To do this we need to measure how consistent and reliable our care is throughout all areas. We aim to identify any variations in infection prevention and control practice and address any areas or issues where improvement is needed. Over the next 2 years we will; Ensure that staff continue to have access to infection prevention and control policies and guidance that reflects current national policy, statutory requirements and best evidence based guidance. Ensure that a robust infection prevention and control audit programme is in place. Develop a quality improvement programme aimed at minimising the risk of urinary catheter related infections. Prevention and Control Strategy Page 3

4 Priority 5: Partnership working We are committed to working in partnership to improve the care we provide by being open, transparent and inclusive Working collaboratively across organisational boundaries is essential in the reduction of HCAI and achieving infection prevention targets. Benefits include; The ability to improve decision making due to a broader understanding of the bigger picture. The access to increased capacity and expertise providing the opportunity to achieve more for less. An increase of responsiveness through economies of scale and availability of more resources. Work has commenced in the strengthening of partnership working with all providers and Commissioners to drive forward a further reduction of HCAI across the whole health care economy. Over the next 2 years we will; Continue to share learning with regional partners and learn from others by the continued attendance at regular local and regional meetings. Continue to participate in the development of policies and procedures across the whole health economy to guarantee a unified approach to delivering high standards of infection prevention and control. Remain committed to supporting national initiatives and innovations in order to improve the patient journey. Complete a rigorous investigation of all episodes of any HCAI and evidence learning from them. Priority 6: Providing leadership in infection prevention and control We are committed to ensuring that exemplary infection prevention and control principles are firmly embedded within every staff members daily practice Infection control and the prevention of all infection remains a major goal within all healthcare settings and ultimately is the responsibility of everyone who works within the trust. Exemplary care should be delivered by staff who understand and effectively discharge their roles and individual responsibilities for the prevention and treatment of HCAI. To support staff the Infection Prevention and Control Team (IPCT) currently deliver an evidence-based educational programme for all members of trust staff. Prevention and Control Strategy Page 4

5 An organisational review of the Trust Statutory and Mandatory Training Programme has recently been completed and is expected to provide the IPCT with an opportunity to develop a wider range of options for staff to fulfil development and training needs. Over the next 2 years we will; Aim to develop a wider range of options for staff to fulfil development and training needs. Review and refresh the infection prevention and control training programme to ensure it remains responsive to both national requirements and staff needs. Sustain and enhance the infection prevention and control link practitioner programme. 4. Strategy Delivery How will we achieve all the priorities highlighted within this strategy? The strategy will be delivered though; The formulation and delivery of a Trust Infection Prevention and Control Quality Improvement Plan (Appendix 1). Visible and strong trust board leadership; the strategy is approved by the Board and will be supported and overseen by members of the Executive Team. Clear lines of responsibility and effective performance management of all Care Group s. The formulation of infection prevention and control policies which reflect national recommendations, statutory requirements, latest guidance and local need. The inclusion of infection prevention and control issues in all business planning processes as a matter of course. A varied trust infection prevention and control training programme. Local and trust performance management; performance against HCAI targets are reported through the Trust key performance indicators. A programme of infection prevention and control assurance reporting; including progress with audit action plans, environmental issues and observation of clinical practice utilising the Infection Prevention Society s (IPS) Quality Improvement Tool (QIT) framework. Rigorous investigation of all episodes of HCAI and evidence of learning from them. Regular monitoring and reporting of HCAI in accordance with Department of Health and Trust approved reporting requirements. Performance managing areas where problems are identified. Sustaining a motivated engaged workforce. Improved engagement with all patients and the public. 5. Strategy Implementation, Monitoring and Review The Trust Board is responsible for ensuring the trust has appropriate infection prevention and control systems and resources in place to enable delivery of all the Prevention and Control Strategy Page 5

6 infection prevention and control objectives. This strategy and the Trust Infection Prevention and Control Quality Improvement Plan will be approved and reviewed by the Trust Board. Progress made against the strategy will be monitored bi-monthly by the HCAI Group. A quarterly briefing report will be prepared and presented to the Quality and Patient Safety Committee. This will highlight any achievements made as well as escalating any areas of concern. An Annual Infection Prevention and Control report will be produced and presented to the Trust Board. Other reports will be produced by exception. 6. Dissemination of Strategy The strategy will be available on the trust intranet. Awareness of the strategy will be raised through education and training, staff briefing and the IPCT newsletter. Prevention and Control Strategy Page 6
