Infection Prevention done well saves lives, cuts costs, and enhances facility performance.
Facilities that partner with Capsid Consulting meet monthly to discuss ASP and IP with their dedicated CIC certified infection preventionist.
As with each facility having a dedicated IP available to them, our IPs are always under direct supervision of a board certified infectious disease physicians.
We handle and give guidance on complexities such as:
MDROs (Multi Drug Resistant Organisms)
Tranmission based precuations such as precautions based on risk factors for spread of infection
Resident selection placement and cohorting
Outbreak management such as COVID-19, or influenza, norovirus
Employee, resident and family education on policies and procedures
Over 4 million Americans are admitted to or reside in nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities each year and nearly one million persons reside in assisted living facilities.
Data about infections in LTCFs are limited, but it has been estimated in the medical literature that 1 to 3 million serious infections occur every year in these facilities.
