  • Adherence Monitoring Tools

    How do you know if your facility is complying with best practices if you do not assess daily practice? Regular adherence monitoring allows a facility to evaluate strengths and gaps in care. The CDPH HAI Program adherence monitoring page provides a variety of free tools that outpatient facilities can use to improve infection prevention practices.
    Tools available include:

    • Environmental Services (Housekeeping)
    • Hand Hygiene
    • Blood Glucose Monitoring
    • Infection Safety
    • Hemodialysis 
    • Central Line Adherence Monitoring
    • Device Reprocessing
