Infectious Disease Management in Long Term Care
April 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Presented By: Richard G Stefanacci, DO, MGH, MBA, AGSF, CMD
COVID-19 has amplified the vital role of infectious disease control. But even before this pandemic SNFs were being called to improve antibiotic use through more focused antibiotic use and preventing infections through improved urinary tract, blood glucose and clostridium difficile management. A foundation of these efforts is contact precautions, hand hygiene and vaccinations. Of course success requires team work with unique roles and responsibilities. In the end these efforts taken together will improve outcomes for SNF patients at this most critical time.
Following participation in the webinar, the attendee will be able to:
- Describe importance and process for achieving Antibiotic Stewardship
- Examine opportunities to improve Urinary Tract Infections,
Blood Glucose Monitoring and Clostridium Difficile Management
