BACKGROUND:
In April 2013, Dr. Grace Hassid assumed the role of Medical Director for Infection Control at San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC). Infection control addresses factors related to the spread of infections within healthcare settings, including prevention, monitoring/investigation of demonstrated or suspended spread of infection within a particular healthcare setting, and management.

DISCUSSION:
Dr. Hassid will continue to provide infection prevention and control at SMMC for twenty hours per week, in conjunction with the SMMC Manager of Infection Control.

County Administrative Memorandum B-1 provides that contracts for physicians are exempt from the Request for Proposals process.

The agreement and Resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.

The Resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

The agreement contributes to the Shared Vision 2025 outcome of a Healthy Community by striving to provide an infection-free environment for SMMC patients and staff. It is anticipated that 100% of services provided at SMMC will adhere to the infection control standards as defined by the Joint Commission and Title XXII of the State of California Code of Regulations.
