Infection Prevention Liaisons (IPLs) monitor hand hygiene practices and staff compliance with isolation precautions in various areas in the hospital across all six NYP campuses. IPLs are trained and validated to conduct direct observations, which is the gold standard in monitoring hand hygiene practices. In addition to conducting hand hygiene observations, they also educate healthcare workers about any missed hand hygiene or infection prevention opportunities. After educating HCWs about missed opportunities, IPLs communicate the results of their observations along with the name of the HCW to supervisors, managers and Patient Care Directors (PCDs), as well as the physician program directors and chairpersons. IPLs report to the Program Manager for Infection Prevention & Control Department.
