Infection Control Long Term Care: Transfer of Residents With Suspected or Confirmed Tuberculosis Mobile App
The Infection Control Long Term Care: Transfer of Residents With Suspected or Confirmed Tuberculosis mobile app contains scientifically based information to improve the assessment of residents.
How does it work?
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. Residents with suspected or confirmed active pulmonary tuberculosis will be transferred to a facility with appropriate tuberculosis isolation facilities. All personnel with resident contact will have a single baseline tuberculosis skin test (Mantoux) and a medical history taken when hired. These personnel should also receive initial training about tuberculosis and the facilities policies and procedures. This training should be repeated annually.
