DuPont Sustainable Solutions has released the DVD-based training series, "Infection Control In Long-Term Care: Protect Your Residents, Protect Yourself," a timely training program that addresses the unique challenge of disease-prevention in long-term care facilities.

This DVD program is in response to an increase in both the aging population and the corresponding demand for long-term care services. It covers a wide range of topics including: identification of common infections; factors that increase susceptibility to infection; and various practices that can help prevent disease.

"Infection Control In Long-Term Care: Protect Your Residents, Protect Yourself" explains each topic in detail, stressing the delicate and difficult nature of protecting residents from infection. To help determine specific interventions, the program identifies the various methods that diseases can be transmitted. It also points out potential sources of infections and cites reasons that increase vulnerability to disease.

The program explores the various preventive measures and explains how each one can inhibit the spread of specific diseases. It discusses standard precautions, infection prevention practices that apply to all patients, and transmission-based precautions, which include contact, airborne and droplet precautions.

The training DVD also enumerates detailed dos and don'ts in hand hygiene, personal protective equipment, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette, resident placement and transport, sharps safety and safe injection practices, cleaning patient care equipment, and housekeeping.
