As outlined in the MCARE Act, the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority is responsible for appointing and maintaining a panel of experts to provide guidance to the Authority and other state agencies on infection-related topics, such as:
- Educational needs for various types of facilities and healthcare workers
- Reasonable goals for HAI reduction
- Evidence-based practices
The Authority is seeking applications to fill vacancies from an ambulatory surgical facility, rural hospital, county nursing home, and for-profit nursing home. Experience in surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, podiatry, dentistry, behavioral health, pharmacy, and facilities management is preferred.
The Authority is also seeking to expand the depth and scope of the panel, so all qualified individuals are encouraged to apply!
