Masterclass: Best Practice Considerations for Infection Prevention in the Home Setting

Infection prevention is of the utmost importance in all health care settings, but it holds particular significance when it comes to home care. The home serves as a sanctuary for vulnerable individuals, where they can receive the care they need while minimizing their exposure to infectious agents. By placing a strong emphasis on infection prevention measures within the home, caregivers can effectively reduce the risk of hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and other healthcare interventions. This not only improves health outcomes but also enhances the overall quality of life for those under their care.

In this one-hour Masterclass episode, Best Practice Considerations for Infection Prevention in the Home Setting, Susan LaGrange, Pathway Health’s Chief Nursing Officer, and Tiffany Robinson, ComForCare Training Specialist, will dive into the education, training, and robust protocols that professional caregivers should consider to support a healthy environment. Get ready to fully understand the importance of building healthier communities and preventing infections in the home setting. Tune in now!
