Preventing Healthcare Associated Infections

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI) is committed to the highest standards of medical practice and training of doctors. As part of its efforts in the area of HCAI prevention and control it has established a Policy Group to issue key statements of relevance in the area of HCAI, therefore RCPI welcomes the publication of the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) Infection Prevention and Control Standards that apply to all healthcare facilities.
