Infection Control Long Term Care: Head Lice Infestation Mobile App

Head lice are blood-sucking insects that are found on people’s heads. The head louse is found on the hair near the scalp, especially behind the ears and at the nape of the neck. Anyone, no matter how clean they are, who comes in close contact with someone whom already has head lice can get head lice infestation.

The Infection Control Long Term Care: Head Lice Infestation 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 head louse treatment, including antimicrobials and fine-toothed combs for the hair and scalp.

Tackle head lice infestations head on with this simple app. All completed apps are saved in your GoCanvas Cloud account and emailed to you upon submission.
