MRSA Infection Control and Epidemiology: Risk Assessment Scoring Tool Mobile App
Core features are free forever
Multidrug-resistant organism transmission and infection are among the most important current issues in healthcare settings, including long-term care (LTC) facilities.
How does it work?
Although there are many multidrug-resistant organisms that may cause resident infections, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, commonly referred to as MRSA, is one of the most prevalent and persistent of these significant pathogens. The purpose of the MRSA Infection Control and Epidemiology: Risk Assessment Scoring Tool mobile app is to evaluate the level of MRSA risk within an LTC facility and to develop facility- and unit-specific strategies to reduce MRSA transmission risk to residents, staff, and visitors. The app includes a detailed Risk Assessment Scoring Tool. The MRSA risk assessment must include clear definitions for all measurements. A new MRSA acquisition is typically considered to be associated with the healthcare facility if it is detected more than 48 hours after admission. When incidence or prevalence rates are used in the risk assessment, numerator and denominator data—as well as the types of statistical tools used in the data evaluation—must be clearly defined.
