Infection Control Long Term Care: Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci Mobile App

The Infection Control Long Term Care: Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci 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. Enterococci are bacteria that are normally found in the bowel and vagina of humans. When these bacteria get outside of these areas, they may cause urinary tract infections, wound infections or bloodstream infections. Enterococci are now the third most common cause of infections in hospi-talized patients. These bacteria are often difficult to treat with antibiotics. However, one antibiotic that is normally effective is known as vancomycin. Need instructions on how to delete a saved submission on your device?
