COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control Practices in Long-Term Care, Residential and Retirement Homes
Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Accreditation Canada are providing complimentary access to a selection of resources to fight COVID-19.
This toolkit has been created by Accreditation Canada (AC) and Health Standards Organization (HSO) to assist long-term care and residential care homes across Canada in understanding how to integrate essential Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) practices into their services in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This toolkit draws from a combination of national and international resources on COVID-19 such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) as well as actionable criteria found within HSO’s evidence-based standards.
This toolkit does not replace any jurisdictional legislation or professional regulatory requirements and should be used in conjunction with relevant clinical practice guidelines and other detailed IPC resources.
