Learning from COVID-19: Summary of feedback from the hospital and aged residential care surveys during the COVID-19 response to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement
A summary of the responses to two surveys relating to infection prevention and control (IPC) during the COVID-19 pandemic response. The surveys were conducted by the Health Quality & Safety Commission in July−August 2020. One survey related to hospital settings; the other to aged residential care (ARC).
The aim of the surveys was to better understand and identify needs and opportunities relating to IPC for the specific acute care and community settings so we can reconsider Aotearoa New Zealand’s future IPC approach to keeping its population safe – with or without a pandemic.
