Infection control coordinators are responsible for identifying where they can reduce the risk of infection for employees, patients and visitors. Instead of reacting to outbreaks, “infection prevention practitioners” (the preferred nomenclature) are now proactively looking for ways to prevent infections. Because each healthcare worker is integral to effective infection prevention at their facility, IC professionals must enforce protocol and educate everyone on staff – even when it comes to simple tasks like hand washing. According to Martha Seneca, MSN, ARNPN, FNP-BC, healthcare providers—especially those with more education—will skimp on hand hygiene practices. She urges them to be better hygiene role models.

Infection control programs need to be compliant with numerous regulations from the CDC and keep up with current practices. Infection control coordinator jobs will have you reporting to numerous bodies both inside and outside of the organization. These bodies can include the emergency preparedness committee, the safety committee and the needlestick committee.

If you have prior IC experience, check out the infection control coordinator positions on ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs and browse the openings to see if you’re a perfect fit!
