Infection Control Long Term Care: Guidelines for Tuberculosis Contact Investigation Mobile App

It provides nursing professionals with criteria for identifying specific body-site infections. This enhances the objectivity of reporting signs and symptoms to providers and helps providers make decisions whether or not to culture sites, order other diagnostic tests, and/or prescribe treatment, including antimicrobials. The identification of an active case of tuberculosis in an employee, volunteer or resident of a long-term care facility may present some particularly difficult problems. Residents are usually elderly and therefore may be at greater risk of developing disease due to a recently acquired infection, as well as developing disease from a long-ago infection. This problem is compounded by the congregate living situation that potentially enhances the transmission of any communicable disease. In addition, tuberculosis may go unrecognized in debilitated elderly residents for months, resulting in prolonged exposure of a large number of staff and residents. It is important to "THINK TB".

How It Works
I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.
