While waiting for the COVID-19 vaccine, the number of new COVID-19 infections continue to surge. Home care and hospice clinicians must keep their infection prevention and control knowledge and skills current while caring for patients with COVID-19 in the home.

Review the latest infection prevention and control strategies based on the current CDC recommendations and OSHA regulations, and receive practical, best-practice recommendations for preventing the transmission of SARS-COV-2 when caring for a patient in the home. Topics include PPE use/re-use, conservancy, and storage, potential compliance issues, preventing secondary household SARS-CoV-2 transmission, managing equipment, and supplies brought into the home, and more.

Objectives

  • Outline how to reduce the risk of transmitting and being exposed to SARS-CoV-2 when caring for a patient with COVID-19 in the home.
  • Describe current CDC recommendations and OSHA regulations for the use and management of PPE in the home.
