New Long-Term Care Fit Testing Resources
Nebraska DHHS HAI/AR Program is planning to offer assistance to nursing homes and assisted living facilities across the state in getting their staff fit tested with N-95 masks and train additional personnel in infection prevention and control Through the Nursing Home Strike Team grant. This program will also include training a few of the facility staff in performing their own fit testing, and each facility will be receiving its own fit testing equipment. The plan is to provide cost reimbursement to the facilities for their time spent on this project.
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities should complete this survey to provide the Nebraska DHHS HAI/AR program of their intent if they are planning to join this program upon announcement. Please click the button below to be taken to the survey.
