Infection Control Long Term Care: Shingles Mobile App
The Infection Control Long Term Care: Shingles 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. Shingles is a viral disease that occurs as a result of having had chickenpox at an earlier age. Following infection with chickenpox, the virus lies dormant in the body, generally along a nerve root, and is reactivated when host defense mechanisms wane either due to age or disease. You can now set GoCanvas to validate when you want where 12 hours or 30 days.
