Infection Prevention SPECIFICALLY for Ohio’s ASCs

Elethia Dean, RN, BSN, MBA, PhD ASC Compliance

Did you know that ODH is requesting that ASCs have continuing education on Ohio-specific infection prevention citations? And you know what the top citation ODH finds…infection prevention – lack of appropriate plans, lack of oversite, lack of annual IP professional training and lack of in-service training.

In the past two years, 80 percent of surveyed ASCs have been cited for some lack of infection prevention controls. Are you sure that you are meeting requirements with a highly effective infection prevention program?

Nationally recognized ASC infection prevention (and Ohio’s own) expert Elethia Dean will share her Ohio-specific perspectives on:


  • Top Ohio IP Citations – What are they, what are the details behind them and can your center avoid them.
  • Proper, appropriate and complete components of an IP Plan Conducting a CORRECT annual/as needed IP assessment Tracking Surgical Site Infections APPROPRIATELY in an ASC setting
  • Statistics for the ASC IP professional – Knowing how to correctly calculate your center’s data
  • Tracking Surgical Site Infections APPROPRIATELY in an ASC setting


There is ONLY ONE place in Ohio to get AFFORDABLE training and resources you need for your center AND address the most common issues cited in Ohio by inspectors. No need to travel to expensive trainings elsewhere when you can receive ALL that you need for your center here.

Our five hour pre-conference session on Sept.18 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. in advance of the OAASC annual multidisciplinary conference will cover the multitude of issues and concerns facing OHIO ASC professionals on a wide range of infection prevention topics.

Our expert presenter, Elethia Dean from ASC Compliance will provide a fast paced, informative packed program with excellent, evidence –based Ohio specific information and resources to have an IP program that is top notch and meets everything ODH and CMS needs. Anyone who has attended one (or more) of her presentations know that it will be engaging, interactive and informative.

Attendance will meet CMS and ODH requirements for infection prevention continuing education. All participants will receive a certificate of participation, information for in-service training and continuing education (nursing and BASC – see disclaimer).

You will go home with all the resources – including in-service training materials - you need to meet CDC, CMS and ODH requirements. And most importantly, you will have what you need for the highest quality of care for your patients on infection prevention in your center.
