Healthcare-associated infections can result in considerable harm or even death for residents of long-term care (LTC) facilities. Because there is often increased risk in these settings, it’s vital that anyone tasked with infection prevention has the best knowledge available to keep residents safe. This newly updated publication aims to help infection preventionists and other leaders in LTC facilities navigate the new regulatory environment and implement evidence-based infection prevention and control (IPC) programs. You’ll get how-to IPC strategies for this unique practice setting.

  • Discussion of the context and regulatory environment for IPC in LTC
  • Coverage of critical topic areas, including surveillance, antimicrobial stewardship, vaccinations, standard- and transmission-based precautions, and treatment modalities
  • Overview of occupational health, environmental factors in LTC facilities, and emergency and disaster preparedness
