Welcome to the Infection Control Nurse Consultation Service Division of MuirLab. Our infection control nurses provide education, training, and consultation on infection prevention and infection control issues for the long-term care clients of MuirLab. In the tradition of John Muir Health, we are committed to providing the best professional assistance possible and communicating the most current information available, as it relates to infection prevention/control concerns.
Our nurses are members of The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. They offer a combined 28-plus years of hands-on experience in the long-term care facility setting and have served in such roles as: Directors of Staff Development, Infection Control, and Quality Assurance. MuirLab is an approved provider of Continuing Education for nurses through the Board of Nursing. We are also an approved provider of Continuing Education for administrators of Skilled Facilities and Assisted Living Facilities.
Our Infection Control Nurses are also able to assist long-term care facilities prepare for Survey by conducting on-site inspections. This "walk-through" focuses on standard infection control practices. Our consultant will observe for possible violations and recommend the best practice for infection prevention. A written report is provided.
