New Jersey Scabies Case Line List Residents Mobile App
Scabies is a skin infection caused by the human itch mite that burrows into the upper layer of the skin and lays eggs.
How does it work?
Symptoms include itching and a skin rash and are usually spread by direct contact with someone who has the infection. If a person has crusted scabies, they may not exhibit the usual signs and symptoms of scabies. This communicable disease is frequently spread in institutions where people are in close contact such as child-care and residential care facilities. Because of the nature of the illness, it is important to track the cases for disease control and prevention. The New Jersey Scabies Case Line List Residents app is essential for tracking cases of scabies in residential care facilities. Using the app, a health investigator can track each patient from the onset of the symptom. The app user will check key signs and symptoms of scabies, record any testing diagnosing scabies, and document treatment. The use of this scabies tracking app will ensure that treatment is provided to the infected individual and provide health protection for all residents within the facility.
