Audit Tools and Checklists
The audit tools and checklists below are intended to promote CDC-recommended practices for infection prevention in hemodialysis facilities. The audit tools and checklists can be used by individuals when assessing staff practices. They can also be used by facility staff themselves to help guide their practices. To download Coalition tools with placeholders to add your organization’s logo, see the hyperlinks below that begin with “Add Your Organization’s Logo.”
To add your organization’s logo to Coalition resources, first obtain the logo in one of the following file formats: .ai, .pdf, .jpeg, .png, or .eps. Files that are in .ai format should be converted to .pdf format before attempting to insert it into the logo placeholder. Download the “Add Your Organization’s Logo” version of the resource, click on the logo placeholder, follow the prompts to import the logo file, and then click “OK.” You may need to consult with your organization’s communications department to obtain the appropriate logo file format if your logo is in a format other than those mentioned above.
For additional suggestions and ideas regarding how to use these tools please see the Making Dialysis Safer for Patients Coaltion.
