“Buffy has been the one of the most vital additions to our healthcare organization. She has a passion and devotion to infection control that resonates in her attention to detail and her ability to translate her findings in a respectful and efficient manner. Buffy has proven to us the importance of having an infection control specialist on-board.”

“IPCWELL has been instrumental in helping me become an effective IP nurse for our building. Buffy became our infectious disease consultant over 1 year ago, shortly after I agreed to take the position as the infection control RN. Knowing hardly anything regarding antibiotic stewardship and the auditing of all of the different departments, IPCWell has been instrumental and a great resource. I learned more on the first site visit than I had learned in all of my certification classes.
IPCwell remains available, day or night, weekday or weekends, if any questions arise. They are friendly and empathetic and have been a great support during this COVID pandemic. Their infection control strategies and foresight have helped us keep an outbreak from occurring in our building. I highly recommend IPCWELL for all of your infection prevention and control needs.”

“A thank you to our amazing partners at IPCWell! Our company is so incredibly lucky to have such phenomenal partners at IPCWell because of the help we receive for our infection control prevention planning. Buffy helps protect our patients and our staff members by conducting on-site visits for education as well as assessments to identify areas of improvement.
She is always available to develop programs, answer questions, and educate all of our team members to maintain a safe environment at our surgical facilities. Buffy communicates with me regularly about our companies needs and ideas to operate a safe and infection-free setting. I highly recommend all companies utilize IPCWell. Buffy genuinely cares about our facilities and it shows by the exceptional work we see. I am very grateful for all of their hard work and continued education.
Thank you so much for all you do!”
