Infection Control Long Term Care: Manage Residents With Suspected or Confirmed Tuberculosis Mobile App

The Infection Control Long Term Care: Manage Residents With Suspected or Confirmed Tuberculosis mobile app contains scientifically based information to improve the assessment of residents. 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. An effective tuberculosis (TB) control plan requires early identification, isolation and effective treatment of persons who have active tuberculosis.
