In Long-Term Living's "Challenges" Editorial Podcast series, our editors ask industry experts to help solve specific problems within the long-term care and post-acute care environments.
Today's podcast is on one of the toughest and most important areas of infection prevention in long-term care facilities: environmental hygiene.
I asked Sherrie Dornberger, RN, the executive director of The National Association of Directors of Nursing Administration/Long-Term Care, who currently consults for Clorox Professional Products Company, to comment on best practices for cleaning and disinfection strategies that balance residents’ quality of care and quality of life.
