Question

Imagine that you are the Infection Control Coordinator at Indigo Community Services & Health Hub.

The Indigo Super Clinic is a medium sized practice with four (4) doctors, several specialists that visit the clinic on a regular basis, two (2) fulltime nursing staff and 1 casual nurse. It also has two (2) full-time receptionists and three (3) additional part-time / casual receptionists.

You have just been made aware by the Public Health Unit that there is currently a severe outbreak of Whooping Cough (Pertussis) in your area.

As part of your role, you are required to conduct a risk assessment of your practice and implement strategies immediately.

Please explain the following:

o   details of the risk

It would be appropriate to call a meeting and send an email to all staff indicating the issues of concern.

§ The source.

§ Mode of transmission.
