APIC Creates New Healthcare Administrator Award, Seeks Nominations

The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) has created a new award to recognize health care CEOs and administrators who support infection prevention and control efforts throughout their facilities. The award, designed to encourage leadership support and collaboration between health care administrators and infection preventionists, will honor a member of a health care facility's executive team (CEO, COO, CFO, CMO, or CNO) who has demonstrated significant and sustained support of the organization's infection prevention team.

APIC will honor the winner of the first Healthcare Administrator Award at a ceremony during International Infection Prevention Week, Oct. 16, 2009. The deadline for nominations is Sept. 18, 2009. APIC's Nominating and Awards Committee invites nominations at this time.

Candidates must be a member of the health care organization's executive team who has made infection prevention an organizational priority, supported programs to target zero health care-associated infections (HAIs), and reduced the transmission of one or more HAIs within their facility.

"With this award, APIC will celebrate the pivotal role that top executives play in establishing an organizational culture that enables and supports infection prevention," said APIC President Christine J. Nutty, RN, MSN, CIC.
