Congratulations to all our Infection Prevention and Control graduates!23 Mar 2021
In October 2020, Minister of Aged Care and Senior Australians, Senator the Hon Richard Colbeck directed every Australian residential aged care facility to appoint a nurse to be the lead person for infection prevention and control (IPC). Since then, RFBI has been working hard to ensure that each RFBI Village meet these requirements.
By mid-November, we had proudly delegated a key IPC Trainer in every RFBI Village whose role was to commence further education for all staff on all aspects of PPE and infection prevention and control.
“Our teams have put in tremendous effort to complete this IPC course and I can proudly say we are now even better prepared for the prevention and response to infection diseases, including COVID-19 and influenza,” shared Deborah Cowler, Regional General Manager, Quality and Development.
We are delighted to now have 26 staff complete over 110 hours in coursework and assessment to be our RFBI certified IPC Lead.
“It was very challenging but I’m very proud to have completed the course,” said Leyda Suttor, General Manager at RFBI Concord Community Village and an IPC graduate.
“It may have been a tough course but many of our graduates felt it was worth the time and effort and surprisingly enough found the course to be very interesting,” added Robyne Bragg, Clinical Nurse Educator.
Our IPC Leads will ensure that each of our village are better prepared to prevent and respond to infectious diseases, including COVID-19 and influenza.
