In 1993, nurses working in home care began the Infection Surveillance Project (ISP). Criteria and definitions were developed for infections associated with central venous and bladder catheters. In addition, internal forms and procedures for home care agencies to use for active surveillance were developed.

ISP participants have benefited from being able to benchmark with other home care agencies. But more importantly, quality care for patients has improved because sources of infection related  to patient population, staff and family, as well as techniques and compliance with accepted standards of care are identified.

Enroll your company as a project participant and join those on the forefront of home care data collection!
