Drastic measures to prevent and control the continued spread of COVID have become paramount. As a result, Infection Preventionists are in high-demand and are quickly becoming key members of the interdisciplinary team caring for our senior population.
At MedBest, we have a network of Infection Preventionists. They are Registered Nurses with backgrounds in clinical practice, epidemiology, and basic microbiology and subsequently, pass an exam to become certified by the Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology.
With the need for increased safety, prevention, and protection for staff and residents, the role of Infection Preventionists will only continue to grow and expand and we're here to help!
