Our colleagues at the Long term Care Community Coalition have prepared a Fact Sheet for nursing home residents justifiably concerned with the spread of Coronavirus. The Fact Sheet lays out key concerns for resident safety, tips for residents, families and the public, and some key differences for residents in nursing homes vs. those in assisted living. LTCCC also has a fact sheet on general Infection Prevention & Control. In addition to this information, LTCCC will host a special call for nursing home family members on infection prevention and control requirements on Tuesday, March 10, at 1pm Eastern. The call can be accessed by dialing 712-770-4010, access code 878277. Though the call is geared toward families, it is open to all.
