Preventing Infection:
A Path Forward for Nursing Homes

Controlling infection has always been an issue for nursing homes, and it's only been more of a burden now that Covid has ravaged the industry. This has made the vital job of nurses to keep infections like soft tissue infections, UITs, and respiratory infections under control even more difficult.

Nurses are being strained more than ever, and some are buckling to the pressure. Since January 2020, 15 percent of caregivers have left their positions. Most nurses in the U.S say they feel overwhelmed, stressed and undervalued. Overworked nurses can lead to forgetting basic hygienic practices like washing their hands. Additionally, over 1 in 4 nurses report they have experienced bullying or incivility from their managers, bosses and or peers. These conditions are eroding the already barely afloat nursing home industry.
