The Economic and Workforce Implications of Facility Acquired Infections-Webinar
Long term care teams are driven to provide the best care for their residents while simultaneously striving to minimize costs. One of the major sources of added costs to a long-term care facility (LTCF) are illnesses and infections. Each illness or infection in the LTCF requires doctor visits, potential isolation, increased monitoring, licensed nurse follow-up, additional medications, quarantines, lock downs, and has the potential for the resident to be admitted to the hospital. Most pathogens that cause illness and infection originate from the air. To minimize this variable, an advanced air purification technology (AAPT) was designed to comprehensively remediate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) while also destroying the DNA and RNA in all airborne pathogens, thereby rendering them noninfectious. A study was conducted comparing the clinical outcomes of the AAPT zone to a control zone with standard high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration. It was hypothesized that the AAPT would be associated with improved clinical and economic metrics.
