Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) Prevention Program

Optimization Strategies for Respirator Use in Long-Term Care Facilities

Thursday, April 15; 10:30–11:30 a.m.

Join us for a presentation and discussion with infection preventionists (IPs) from the Healthcare- Associated Infections (HAI) Prevention Program in the Division of Public Health on optimization strategies for respirator use in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presenters will review CDC optimization strategies for respirator use and walk participants through sample "real life" scenarios. The aim of this program is to walk through the strategy evaluation process to increase LTCF staff and administrators' comfort in selecting and implementing appropriate respiratory protection optimization strategies during times of personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages.

The presentation will be recorded and available on the DHS website for those unable to attend on April 15.
