When hearing the word “infection,” most jump to the conclusion that it is the care team’s responsibility to protect the resident. But the truth is, it takes a village to prevent and control infection in a senior care community.
Infections in seniors are a growing problem, especially among those residing in post-acute care communities. It is reported that 63% of bacteria don’t respond to traditional antibiotics and for many seniors who already have a compromised immune system, it can be much more difficult to bounce back from an infection — even a small one. In fact, healthcare-acquired infections are the fourth-leading cause of death, and cost the industry over $7 billion dollars annually.
