From storms to droughts, wildfires to floods or accidents to epidemics, disasters occur nearly every day in the United States, and the frequency is increasing. How many people are hurt or even killed by such disasters depends on the severity of the event, but also on a health care system’s ability to respond to ensure the ill and injured are treated effectively and efficiently. This webinar will provide information about how to support, coordinate, and manage health care system emergency preparedness, including mitigation, response, and recovery for hazard emergencies and disasters.
This webinar will provide a brief explanation of antibiograms and will delve into their value in acute care, long-term care, and outpatient settings. Using antibiograms to support improved antibiotic use in the broader community also will be discussed.

The Sepsis Toolkit is designed to support skilled nursing facilities in early recognition and intervention for signs and symptoms of sepsis in residents.
Staff members from three separate nursing homes in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Oregon will share their best practices for pain management and prevention of readmissions.
