Do any other states have standards regarding the number of infection control practitioners (ICPs) per facility or per patient load?

At this time, we are aware that New Jersey includes standards in their hospital licensing regulations and requires one full-time ICP to every 200 adjusted occupied beds, where the bed occupancy has been adjusted both for an outpatient factor and for the hospital's all-payer mix index (CMI) using a formula. It also states that for every hospital, there shall be at least one half-time ICP.
