Webinar: Legionella Disease: An Increasing Challenge in Long-Term Care

August 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The incidence of Legionella Disease (LD) in long-term care is on the rise. Statistics indicate that between 2000-2014, there was a 286% increase in cases of Legionella Disease in the United States. Surprisingly, health care facilities represent a high percentage of these cases with long-term care representing 19% of documented cases.

This webinar will provide an overview of LD, discuss why it is important for long-term care providers (AL, PC and SNFs) to evaluate the risk for LD in your building and six steps to take for decreasing the risks associated with Legionella Disease.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide an overview of Legionella Disease and the reasons for the increased number of cases in long-term care (AL, PC and NFs).
  • Discuss how health care providers can assess the risk of Legionella Disease for their buildings and steps to implement to decrease the risks associated with Legionella Disease.
  • Outline recommendations and requirements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid on Legionella in Long-Term Care.
