The Essendon Day Procedure Centre has maintained best practice in infection prevention since it opened in 1998. Since this time, management and staff have continued to strive for the best healthcare outcomes for our patients.
In 2019, 207 patients were admitted for procedures under sedation with local anaesthetic at the Essendon Day Procedure Centre. During this period there were no reported cases of post-operative infection.
In 2019 the EDPC contracted Infection Prevention Australia, IPA to independently review the infection prevention management systems and processes.
IPA, principle consultant Michelle Bibby is a Registered Nurse with more than 20 years’ experience in the area of infection prevention and peri operative services. Over the past 12 months Michelle has completed a risk assessment based on the AS 4187:2014, reviewed hand hygiene compliance, staff health, provided aseptic education programs, reviewed environmental services including waste management and cleaning practices.
