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 the healthcare settings, including prevention, monitoring/investigation of demonstrated or suspended spread of infection within a particular healthcare setting, and management.

DISCUSSION:
Dr. Hassid will now provide infection prevention and control at SMMC for 30 hours per week, in conjunction with the SMMC Manager of Infection Control. This was increased from 20 hours per week, due to COVID-19 response.

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).

It is anticipated that Dr. Hassid will act as Chair of the Infection Control Committee, or assign a designee, for 90% of Committee meetings.
