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.
