Eliminate the Risk of Infection

The transition of healthcare delivery from acute care hospitals to outpatient (ambulatory care) settings, along with ongoing outbreaks have demonstrated the need for greater understanding and implementation of basic infection prevention guidance. 

There has been a significant shift in healthcare delivery from the acute, inpatient hospital setting to a variety of outpatient and community-based settings. Outpatient care is provided in hospital-based outpatient clinics, non-hospital-based clinics and physician offices, urgent care centers, ambulatory surgical centers, public health clinics, imaging centers, oncology clinics, behavioral health clinics and physical therapy and rehabilitation centers, and many other specialized settings.

Ambulatory Surgery Centers—known as ASCs—are modern health care facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures.
