Long term care facilities: H30-11/6-6-1994E

Periodically updated and revised, these national guidelines have been developed to help control the spread of infection by encouraging individual institutions to tailor policies and standards to their specific needs. Nursing homes, auxiliary hospitals and other long-term care facilities have different requirements than hospitals in the prevention and control of infections. Urinary tract infections, whirlpool tub care and cleaning, and tube fittings are just some of the specialized issues covered in the revised and updated edition of this manual. It provides thorough and practical approaches to overall infection control. This publication is part of a series of comprehensive national guidelines for health care professionals designed to control the spread of infection among patients in various types of care facilities.
