Infection prevention is an overwhelming process in a nursing home. There are so many facets that can go wrong, be overlooked, forgotten but all of these incidences could reflect in a survey tag. This presentation will address the most common reasons for a deficiency. We will look into precautions and PPE. Does your staff know what order to put PPE or take it off How do they clean equipment that is used in a precaution room? How knowledgeable is your environmental staff when it comes to cleaning a precautions room or in doing terminal cleaning when the precautions is over? How much time are you spending on education regarding infection control? Is once enough? This presentation will answer these questions and more as well as give you tools to make this process easier. Join us and affirm what you are doing as well as identify areas that need improvement.
