Preamble

The primary objective of any Health care institution is to provide safe environment to all its stakeholders. To this effect, Infection control committee plays a major role in realizing the objective. The infection control committee of FDS has representatives from all levels so as to spread the ownership of providing safe and secure environment. COVID 19 pandemic has posed a different kind of challenge, where the existing policies and procedures had to be revisited considering the dynamics of infection spread. 

Hospital Infection Control Committee (HICC) was constituted in 2006 and since then has been working on developing policies and protocols as relevant and needed. The scope of the HICC is vast and includes providing immunization to DHCP to safe management of health care waste and working on compliance to regulatory advisories notified from time to time.
