Infections: Prevent Them!
Debra Wertheimer, MD, and Stephanie Mayoryk, RN, BSN, CIC, an Infection Control Practitioner, lead a discussion with nursing assistants to emphasize the important steps which must be taken in long-term care or assisted living to prevent the spread of infections and protect both residents and staff.
For long term care residents, infections are a significant source of illness, hospitalizations and death as the frail elderly population are particularly vulnerable to infections. Even though federal regulations require an infection prevention program in every long term care facility, the incidence of infections results in thousands of hospital admissions each year.
This program presents a peer-to-peer instructional opportunity led by two experts. Show it once a month or more often to make sure your staff knows about the necessary precautions, the appropriate use of gowns and gloves and the need for on-going hand washing. We know how to prevent infections, make sure your staff remembers and implements the important guidelines presented in this DVD.
Topics: infection control, hand hygiene, cross contamination, personal protective gear, precaution levels.
Audience: Staff in long term care, assisted living and home health care. Students in allied health, nursing, nursing assistant, and physical therapy programs.
