SPICE - It's the Law!

Statewide Program for Infection and Epidemiology--SPICE I
In North Carolina, every healthcare organization that performs invasive procedures (including injections, finger stick blood sugars) is required to designate a credentialed staff person to receive infection control training and implement an infection control program. The approved infection control curriculum developed by SPICE prepares designated healthcare providers to implement the North Carolina rule, 10A NCAC 41A .0206 INFECTION PREVENTION – HEALTH CARE SETTINGS. Learners will be able to ensure and systematically assess that their facility has the appropriate infection prevention policies and procedures in place to allow healthcare personnel to provide safe patient care consistent with the NC communicable disease rule .0206.
The curriculum is specific for Home Health and Hospice.

  • Epidemiologic principles of infectious disease;
  • Principles and practice of asepsis;
  • Sterilization, disinfection, and sanitation;
  • Universal blood and body fluid precautions;
  • Safe injection practices;
  • Engineering controls to reduce the risk of sharp injuries;
  • Disposal of sharps; and
  • Techniques that reduce the risk of sharp injuries to health care workers.

Nurse Contact Hours will be offered.
