Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore the experiences of Infection and Prevention Control Nurses (IPCNs) and Infection and Prevention Control Link Nurses (IPCLNs) in implementing the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) program. The study used a qualitative method with a phenomenology approach. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with nine nurses working as IPCNs and IPCLNs. Participants were selected using the purposive sampling technique. The data were analyzed using Colaizzi's method. Five main themes from this study emerged, indicating that low compliance, limited facilities, and insufficient budget funds become obstacles in the implementation of IPC programs. IPCNs are the driving force in the implementation of IPC programs. In carrying out their duties for IPC, IPCNs and IPCLNs must develop appropriate knowledge and competences. With the help of IPCLNs and full support from hospital management, the goal of reducing HAIs is expected to be achieved.
