COVID-19 forced aging services organizations into an infection control battle as they waged a war against the pandemic. What have been some of the greatest challenges to keeping older adults and those who care for them safe, and facilities sanitized?
The next webinar in NJAAW’s Parker Health Group, Inc.-sponsored series takes an in-depth look at Parker’s own approach to infection control and how COVID changed the organization’s work at its six NJ care communities for older adults. Speaking will be Parker’s Chief Clinical Officer, Carolyn Bachonski; Corporate Infection Control Specialist, Bharathi Honnurappa, and Director of Technology Innovation, Judy Collett-Miller.
The Parker panel will cover such topics as policies, processes and protocols; environmental issues; building modifications; air handling systems; infection control; organization structure; communication and reporting. Other areas include using technology to support infection control, ATP (adenosine triphosphate) cleaning verification, temperature screening kiosks, BioVigil Hand Hygiene, using data to drive utilization, impact on staff and insights and challenges.
