Prevention Strategies for Multidrug-Resistant Organisms & C. diff from HealthCap®

Dave Kyllo

Twenty percent of individuals admitted to long term care acquire C. difficile during their stay  according to the Center for Disease Control’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion.  Preventing the spread of multi-drug resistant organisms poses an ongoing challenge for providers. 

HealthCap has created a one-page resource containing easy-to-understand prevention strategies for multidrug-resistant organisms and C difficile.  The infographic provides useful reminders for the common preventative measures known to reduce the spread of these infections.
Numerous useful resources can be found on the Resource and Education Center on the HealthCap website.  Providers will find education opportunities (including ANCC-approved sessions), manuals, best practices and model policies.

HealthCap is endorsed by AHCA/NCAL and is the premier program solely dedicated to providing liability insurance to senior care communities.  One of the reasons HealthCap gets such great results is its focus on quality care as the foundation of good risk management practices.  HealthCap clients have the fewest liability claims in the industry and HealthCap settles claims for approximately one-half the industry average.

HealthCap is owned and governed by the senior care providers insured by HealthCap.  AHCA/NCAL members get a bonus advantage by always receiving a 10% discount on their HealthCap premiums.
HealthCap clients also receive:
  • Risk management services that make a financial difference
  • An annual on-site risk consult
  • Unlimited telephone support
  • Accredited in-service education
