Infection Control in the Long-Term Care Facility

Streaming Video - 2011
Rate this:
A disturbing irony of institutional medicine is that hospitals and other health care facilities are hotbeds of microbial infection. This program demonstrates measures that help protect patients and reduce the spread of harmful germs. Showing how and why long-term care residents are highly susceptible to infection, the video lays out clear objectives and strategies designed to cut down, if not wholly eliminate, a profusion of urinary tract, respiratory tract, and soft tissue infections. These include thorough hand-washing techniques, sanitary laundry and meal management, proper care of catheters and other medical equipment, and increased awareness of a patient's mobility, cognition, and communication challenges.
