Join DOH and RCS for an hour-long webinar on the recently updated CDC recommendations for use of Enhanced Barrier Precautions (EBP) in nursing facilities (https://www.cdc.gov/hai/containment/PPE-Nursing-Homes.html).

EBP is an important tool to prevent the spread of multi-drug resistant organisms in your facility and may eventually become part of regulatory surveys. This webinar will include an overview of EBP and resources to assist you with implementation, information from RCS and extended opportunity for Q&A with our panelists. Please register and feel free to share with others SNF/NH providers who would be interested in attending.
