Corrugated cardboard containers represent varying degrees of infection risk for hospitals. ACHC hospital standards address the need for safe storage of supplies and for infection prevention and control strategies. This tool is designed to address the challenges of corrugated containers by offering a template for risk assessment at multiple locations and providing a dashboard view of the results. This is the information you need to establish and demonstrate effective risk mitigation strategies.
The tool calculates specific risk severity based on:
- Current conditions (status, quantity, environment)
- Scope of potential impact on individuals
The dashboard with aggregate results is ideal for use by the hospital’s IPC and Quality leadership.
