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, waste management in all departments. You will also work directly with nursing clinical 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) to enforce awareness and importance of IC protocols. Thus, you will provide input on IC improvements, ensure proper implementation of IC equipment, and attend external meetings in order to exchange information with others on how to tackle IC issues.
As this is a supervising role, other crucial elements are briefing, training and coaching of all (newly recruited) staff on varied IC topics.
