Free Protect Nursing Homes Tool to Control Infections

Workforce | June 09, 2021

Take advantage of a free new resource for nursing home/SNF leaders seeking to control infections at skilled nursing facilities: ProtectNursingHomes.org. Built by Yale, UCLA and US Digital Response, the site provides rich detail on staff interconnectivity that has long been desired by nursing home administrators and health leads, but that has been difficult to attain. It can be a helpful tool in outbreak management for COVID, as well as other infections that more routinely challenge nursing homes.

As previously featured by the CDC and a LeadingAge national call, an overview and demo of the tool can be found here. Additionally, the Yale team is available to provide briefings and demos for individual state partners, conferences, and webinars. To schedule, please contact: protectnursinghomes@yale.edu.
