Important information for your instructors and students prior to attending the Mandatory Infection Prevention Competency Fair 2019.

Helpful Tips!

Our goal is to assess compliance of the attendees.  It is not a time for us to teach them basic infection prevention practices.  All staff and non-employees (instructors/students) are encouraged to review the documentation prior to attending the Competency Fair.  If they come unprepared, they are to be instructed to step out of line and review the videos or documentation available on-site.  We are also assessing compliance with our fingernail policy. Attendees in violation of the nail policy are not to be checked off for Hand Hygiene until they are in compliance. They will have to return another day to complete the skills fair.

Please watch the following videos before attending. (This will shorten the length of the fair for you)
