Infection Prevention and Control for Assisted Living Providers
November 10, 2020
It is estimated that 1 to 3 million serious infections occur every year in:
- nursing homes
- skilled nursing facilities
- assisted living facilities
With the danger of COVID to the elderly population who rely on others to care for them, it is imperative that providers and care-givers remember to practice basic infection control processes. Residents and patients depend on you each day for their health and well-being. By reminding staff the importance of disease prevention protocols and reviewing these measures regularly, we can reduce the spread of infection and ultimately save lives.
The CDC offers infection prevention training courses to aid in the prevention and spread of disease within long-term care facilities.
