As an Infection Control Supervisor in Haiti, you will continuously improve the quality of standards of infection control activities and procedures in the project area.
In this role, you develop and implement required measures in order to upgrade Infection and Prevention Control (IPC) in the project following advisors' recommendations and MSF OCA policies. This includes identifying and tackling new IC issues that arise; ensuring monitoring and follow-up occurs throughout all hospital departments; and the coaching and capacity building of national hygiene infection control supervisors.
This will be achieved through implementing, revising and following-up IC measures (as described in the IC strategy) while evaluating adherence to IC measures, such as adherence to hygiene management and waste management. You will also work directly with clinical nursing supervisors to assure proper nursing techniques are being used. You will share the results of your observations and hospital analyses with supervisors and teams (in a culturally sensitive way) in order to increase awareness and importance of IC protocols. Thus, you will provide input on IC improvements, ensure proper implementation of IC (and equipment), and attend external meetings in order to share and exchange information with others on how to tackle IC issues. You will also train and coach staff on varied IC topics.
