When it comes to infection control, compliance is difficult, but the stakes are high. Make sure your infection control program keeps residents safe and meets government regulations with Infection Control for Nursing Homes.
This book and CD-ROM helps directors of nursing, staff educators, and long-term care administrators update their current infection control plans to meet the newest government requirements and ensure resident safety.
It’s one of the biggest challenges your facility faces: Under F-Tag #441, nursing homes must “establish and maintain an infection control program designed to provide a safe, sanitary, and comfortable environment and to help prevent the development and transmission of disease and infection.” With residents frail and at a greater risk for infections such as MSRA, c. difficile, urinary tract infections (UTI), and, according to the Centers for Disease Control, pandemic flu virus, an effective infection control program is crucial - yet nursing homes often lack the resources to identify and control infection.
