Infection Control in Long Term Care
Join us for a webinar,
February 24, 2016 at 12:00 PM CST.
Infections account for up to half of all transfers from LTC and other senior care communities to hospitals and result in an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 hospital admissions annually.
Do you know…
• why adults residing in LTC communities are prone to infections?
• why defining roles in the treatment process can have a significant impact on the successful treatment of infections?
• how to ensure that the infected patient isn’t treated with antibiotics without a reliable clinical picture?
• the four most common sites of infections?
But what does the evidence show, and how is it balanced against the side effect—such as dizziness and memory problems—that can be especially problematic in an older adult?
Please join Sharon A. Carlo, RN, CLNHA, President/CEO of the Reds group as she discusses current infection control standards of practice to identify, investigate, control and prevent infections within our long term care communities.
