    Thank you for providing the excellent resource materials related to the topics in the newletter. This is long term care at its best. I am interested in infection control practices specific to conjunctivitis and c-diff in long term care. Many long term care nurses have varying views on infection control practices in long term care and I would like to clarify this. Thank You Mary McGill

    Hi Mary,

    Good question, as there are a variety of thoughts on what type of precautions to use for these two infections. I think that your best course of action is to follow the CDC guidelines for Isolation – standard precautions for conjunctivitis and contact precautions for c diff. I am providing you with a reference document that has the type of precautions to be used in Appendix A – page 94-116. The pdf can be viewed at this link: http://cmscompliancegroup.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Isolation2007-CDC-guidelines1.pdf

    Kind regards, Linda
