Did you know Nursing Homes and Long Term Care Facilities are especially prone to outbreaks of infection more than in other settings? This is because the residents, who are often debilitated and with underlying medical conditions are more susceptible to healthcare-associated infections.
Nursing Homes may potentially be a hotbed of multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO) due to overcrowding and understaffing of trained staff.
Infection control is often under-emphasized in Nursing Homes due in part to the lack of dedicated infection control staff and optimal staffing.
STS Academia with a strong background in infection control and healthcare quality can help Long-term Care Facilities, such as nursing homes and Senior Care centers strengthen their infection prevention and control in two ways:
1. First, by providing training on infection control for all their front-line staff to equip them with the basic knowledge and skills of infection prevention and control.
2. Second, by providing an independent onsite audit of the facilities aim at improving their infection prevention and control practices in key areas of their operations.
