What Causes Nursing Home Infections?
We know that there are around 1.5 million to 2 million residents in nursing homes. We also know that nursing home residents in the US experience around 2 million infections each year. For the elderly, infections are much more than just a nuisance – they can be deadly. Older people who contract an infection face an increased risk of extended hospital stays and death.
Some of the most common types of infections that happen in a nursing home include:
Urinary tract infections
Respiratory tract infections
Group A strep
In many cases, these infections occur because nursing home staff fail to follow proper infection protocols or neglect residents.
