Today's growing concerns surrounding infectious risks such as Ebola, EVD-68, and flu are excellent examples of why proactive horizontal approaches to infection prevention and implementing proven prevention practices on a daily basis are so important, because the reality is that long-term care facilities and the populations they serve are at inherently increased risk of infection.
While many long-term care residents may be welcoming in the fall season by enjoying the cooler weather, changing leaves and apple cider, fall is also the time for long-term care facility managers and professionals to develop or dust off infection outbreak prevention plans.
Clorox Healthcare has released a flu prevention toolkit. It includes prevention tips, information on the cost of outbreaks and key findings from infection control experts.
Clorox recently launched the Clorox® 4 in One Disinfectant & Sanitizer, which disinfects hard surfaces, eliminates airborne and odor-causing bacteria and reduces allergens. It kills 24 key germs, including viruses that can cause cold and flu and bacteria associated with E. coli and salmonella.
