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.
The best way to reduce and mitigate risks is to stop infections before they start. We’ll discuss how to implement an overall strategy that stretches beyond hygiene best practices for direct care team members. Germs can creep into a community from all kinds of sources – like family, guests, pets, visiting practitioners and food deliveries – just to name a few. If you don’t take proactive measures with all of these sources, then even your best prevention efforts from your inhouse care team can be squashed – leading to costly outbreaks that put residents’ lives and your organization’s financial health and reputation at risk.
