Improving Infection Control to Keep Your Residents and Community Safe

Senior living communities today face heightened occupancy challenges driven by health and safety concerns of older adults and their families. With rigorous CMS infection control expectations and staffing challenges exacerbated by employee health fears, communities are finding it even more difficult to ensure the training and implementation of proper infection control protocols. 

According to the CDC, 1 to 3 million serious infections occur in long-term care environments each year. 

Contact us for a complimentary consultation to review your community's cleaning and disinfection plan.
