IPCWell is devoted to mitigating infectious diseases and inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in all healthcare settings to reduce adverse events, infections, antibiotic resistance, re-admissions, and death. With human-centred design and new technology, healthcare is rapidly approaching a new horizon that is very promising, but even the brightest minds, cutting edge innovation, and beautiful new models of care will be rendered ineffective if the fundamentals of infection prevention are not firmly in place.

As a new infection preventionist here in Arizona, I have found IPCWell to be a great resource to me. When I have questions is quick to respond, with extensive knowledge on infection practices and guidelines. I am glad that our company has chosen to utilize this service for me.

Infection Preventionist, Long-term Care Facility
Buffy has been a fantastic resource for our small independent CAHs who don’t have the resources to report and navigate NHSN. Thank you for being a great partner for our small rural hospitals.

Associate Director, Arizona Center for Rural Health
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.
