dc.descriptionThis document replaces the previously issued Acute Hospital Infection Prevention and Control Precautions for Possible or Confirmed COVID-19 in a Pandemic Setting Version 2.6. This document should be used in association with “V1.2 Interim Guidance on Infection Prevention and Control for the Health Service Executive 2020” https://www.hpsc.ie/a-z/respiratory/coronavirus/novelcoronavirus/guidance/infectionpreventionandcontrolguidance/hseinfectionpreventionandcontrolguidanceandframework/Interim%20HSE%20Guidance%20on%20IPC.pdf In the context of the continuing pandemic, the advent of effective vaccination is a major advance in reducing the harm associated with COVID-19. However, the fundamental principles of basic infection prevention and control (IPC) are still a key part of the defences we have for protecting patients, our colleagues and ourselves from acquiring this disease. Although transmission in hospital in the early months of 2021 was extremely difficult to control the situation has improved greatly. The addition of vaccination to other measures is likely to be a key driver in this change and this shows that it is possible to manage the risk of spread of COVID-19 while maintaining the delivery of timely and appropriate care to the patient. This document was informed by guidance from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), Public Health Wales (PHW), Public Health Agency (PHA) Northern Ireland, Health Protection Scotland (HPS) Public Health England (PHE), European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Colleagues in the HPSC have also contributed to the development and review of this document. There is variation in detail between national guidance on IPC issued in different countries. Similarly, many specialist societies have issued recommendations, which differ in some details from national or international IPC guidelines. Although differences in detail are a focus of considerable debate and can create a very challenging environment for IPC practice, it is important to focus on the clear consensus on all the most critical aspects of IPC and to continue to work together to manage those areas of difference and to look to emerging evidence to resolve those differences.en_US
