Infection Prevention Campaign Program (IPC)

The Infection Prevention Campaign Program (IPC) teaches hospital staff to eliminate hospital-acquired infections through increased hand washing, worker immunizations and environmental cleanliness. This program is co-sponsored by the 1199SEIU Training and Employment Funds (TEF), 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East (1199SEIU) and Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA).

Managers and staff in selected hospitals are trained in infection protection methods, and then sent into their units and departments to coach and educate their colleagues.
