A clinical infection control audit programme : evaluation of an audit tool used by infection control nurses to monitor standards and assess effective staff training.
In today's competitive market infection control teams are under increasing pressure from purchasing authorities to provide hard data on quality issues.
The initial aim of this study was to determine whether a modified form of the audit system used to monitor infection control standards in Derbyshire could be used effectively across three district health authorities.
Infection control nurses in each of the study districts have different approaches to training with only Stafford using a link nurse system.
Our additional aim therefore was to examine the relationship between the knowledge base of nursing staff and their ward audit score, and to determine whether wards with link nurses achieved significantly higher scores.
