CMS Issues Nursing Homes Best Practices Toolkit to Combat COVID-19

CMS released a new toolkit intended to serve as a catalog of resources
dedicated to addressing the specific challenges facing nursing homes as they
combat COVID-19.

CMS says the toolkit provides resources and direction for quality improvement
assistance and can help in the creation and implementation of strategies and
interventions intended to manage and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within
nursing homes. The toolkit outlines best practices for a variety of subjects
ranging from infection control to workforce and staffing. It also provides contact
information for organizations who stand ready to assist with the unique
challenges posed by caring for individuals in long-term care settings.
