An important part of preventing the spread of infection from one resident to others is the proper placement of residents within the facility. Early detection of infections and isolation of residents minimizes the risk of transmission and the prevention of an outbreak. This course discusses the guidelines for the use of isolation and provides examples of isolation types for specific diseases. It also discusses how cohorting works in infection prevention. You will learn that without the use of isolation and cohorting of residents, infections can spread, causing adverse treatment outcomes. The goal of this course is to educate nursing professionals in long-term care facilities on the use of isolation and cohorting to help prevent the spread of infections.
