Infection Control Long Term Care: Clostridium Difficile Diarrheal Disease Mobile App
The Infection Control Long Term Care: Clostridium Difficile Diarrheal Disease 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. Clostridium difficile is a gram-positive spore forming bacterium that produces two exotoxins responsible for the development of gastrointestinal (GI) illness (colitis) generally following administration of antibiotics. Because of the bacterium’s ability to form spores, it can persist in the environment for months and is highly resistant to cleaning. It is also called antibiotic associated diarrhea (AAD) and/or pseudomembranous colitis. GoCanvas enables you to complete your forms out of wireless range.
