Department of Health Care Homes: Infectious Disease/Incident Surveillance Form Guidelines (UK) Mobile App
The Infectious Disease/Incident Surveillance Form mobile app provides an easy what from facilities to report infectious disease incidents and surveillance using a smartphone or tablet.
How does it work?
Use the app when residents have been diagnosed by a doctor (usually the resident’s general practitioner. Care homes should ensure that they provide suitable and sufficient information on each resident’s infection status whenever they are moved from the care of one organization to another. It is important to remember that the resident in isolation will be both physically and psychologically isolated. When a decision about isolating an infected resident is taken, it is important to take into account the likely effect on the resident. Elderly people may become disorientated and confused by isolation, which should therefore be avoided unless it is really necessary.
