Session 20 | COVID-19 CDC Evidenced Based Infection Control Practice Changes to Sustain Resident Safety in Skilled Nursing Centers

Session Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about many changes in nursing centers, and we adapted to frequent changes in guidance from CDC and CMS. This session will discuss evidence-based infection control practices to retain in nursing centers as best practices for resident, family and staff safety. It will also have a focus on best practice infection control guidelines other than those from the CDC that can assist with continuing to improve resident outcomes. Lastly, changes needed to sustain best practices and further improve the culture of infection prevention and control in nursing homes will be identified.
