Healthcare professionals know that the fall season also means the start of norovirus season. Most norovirus cases occur between November and April in the United States.
Since norovirus is extremely contagious, outbreaks are especially harrowing for hospitals and long-term care facilities, which account for more than 25 percent of all U.S. outbreaks according to a 2010 study in the American Journal of Infection Control.
To equip healthcare professionals with the educational tools they need to help prevent and contain norovirus outbreaks in their facilities Clorox Healthcare created the Norovirus Prevention Toolkit. The kit includes:
- Key facts about norovirus, including the impact it has on healthcare facilities
- Advice from leading infection preventionists
- Prevention tips and protocols for different areas of the healthcare environment
- An environmental cleaning checklist
