COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control
The document linked below outlines COVID-19 infection prevention and control best practices for behavioral health inpatient and residential care facilities to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Patients/residents and staff in inpatient and residential behavioral health facilities have a higher risk of getting COVID-19 due to living and working in close quarters and providing treatment to patients. As a result, it is important to have standardized best practices and guidelines to help staff take precautions to protect their patients/residents and themselves, while still providing high quality care. Facilities should develop and implement COVID-19 plans based on facility size, type of population and services provided.
