The Centers for Disease Control unveiled a new website with infection  prevention resources for long-term care settings such as nursing homes and  assisted living. This site organizes  existing infection prevention guidance and resources into sections for clinical  staff, infection prevention coordinators, and residents. Facilities can also  directly access the new infection tracking system for long-term care facilities  in CDC’s National Healthcare  Safety Network, and the innovative infection prevention tools and resources  developed as part of the partnership between CDC and the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign (AE).

CDC’s long-term care website is available at: http://www.cdc.gov/longtermcare/.
