Foundation taking part in national 'Safety Program for Long Term Care' 11.20.2014

The Foundation for Healthy Communities is one of five organizations in the country participating in a pilot initiative of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) Safety Program for Long Term Care.

This is an exciting opportunity to participate in an important national resident safety improvement program with a focus on infection prevention that is specifically designed for facilities for both short-stay residents or Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) and long-stay residents or nursing homes.

The AHRQ Safety Program for Long-Term Care: CAUTI is complementary to other long-term care safety initiatives such as the Advancing Excellence Campaign.
