Infection Control Long Term Care: Influenza Mobile App

The Infection Control Long Term Care: Influenza 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. Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus. There are two main types of influenza viruses: type A and type B. Each type has many different subtypes or strains. Influenza, type A, causes moderate to severe illness. Type B causes milder disease and primarily affects children. Influenza can occur throughout the year, but seasonally peaks from December to March.Cancel you GoCanvas account…that just Crazy talk!
