LRHA is excited to announce the launch of their Rural Infection Prevention and Control Training (RIPCT) Program!  This program is aimed at educating Rural Hospitals and Rural Health Clinics on the most up to date evidence-based practices in Infection Prevention and Control to ensure regulatory success and utmost patient safety. The RIPCT Program will include a series of webinars that educate on all Infection Prevention and Control regulatory requirements of rural hospitals and rural health clinics. The Program will also include On-Site Infection Prevention and Control assessments and training for ten (10) Rural Hospitals and thirty (30) Rural Health Clinics with personal protective equipment (PPE) and Infection Prevention and Control Resources provided to each site!

All education and training will be provided by Taylor Cottano and his team at Southern EVALS. Mr. Cottano is a Board-Certified Infection Preventionist, and he and his team have worked with hundreds of facilities on ensuring their Infection Prevention and Control Programs were compliant and effective. The information provided through this program will benefit both new and seasoned managers of rural infection control programs.
