Abstract

ABSTRACT Due to the rapid transfer of patients from the acute‐care setting, the intensity of nursing care among residents in longterm –care facilities (LTCFs) has increased, transforming today’s LTCFs into subacute healthcare facilities. Given the increased risk of infection among residents in LTCFs and the associated morbidity and mortality, evaluation of infection control programs in skilled nursing LTCFs is warranted. This article addresses the current structure and process of infection control programs in skilled nursing LTCFs.
