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 have 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 infection prevention and control 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
