Infection Control Pilot Project

CMS has recently begun a three-year pilot project with a focus on assessing the continuum of infection prevention efforts between hospitals and nursing homes in order to prevent transmission of infections in both settings. This program is strictly for educationally purposes and facilities participating in this project will not receive citations. CMS has not released information on the facilities picked to partake in this pilot project but indicated that information will be sent at a later time to the Regional Offices.
