Abstract

Graduates of a 2-day basic training course in infection control were surveyed. Respondents were generally from Midwestern long-term care facilities and small hospitals. These infection control practitioners had multiple roles in addition to infection control, most notably employee health and quality assurance. Infection control practitioners demonstrated significant job stability. The vast majority of institutions where survey respondents were employed followed recommended infection control practices.
