Infection Control Long Term Care: Tuberculosis Mobile App
The Infection Control Long Term Care: Tuberculosis 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. Tuberculosis is a disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This bacterium can cause disease anywhere in the body, but is of most concern for transmission when found in the lungs.
