Infection Control Long Term Care: Hepatitis C Mobile App

The Infection Control Long Term Care: Hepatitis C 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. Hepatitis C is an inflammation of the liver that is caused by the hepatitis C virus. This inflammation can result in serious liver damage. Eighty-five percent of hepatitis C-infected individuals develop chronic hepatitis. Hepatitis C is now the major reason for liver transplantation in the United States. If you let your 30 day trial expire it is the same as cancelling your account.
