INFECTION SURVEILLANCE

The AMS approach to reducing infection risks and helping facilities stay F880 compliant is proven and highly effective.  We understand the challenges facing long-term care and have a partnership platform that requires very little extra staff time. We serve and support staff by providing useful insights and expertise. AMS employs a combination of continuous and on-going infection prevention mentorship supported by laboratory diagnostics and infectious disease analytics. 

AMS provides both Targeted and Comprehensive Infection Surveillance that mitigate infection risk early and often. Your clinical leadership chooses which is best for your resident population.

Pinpoint
  • Generally focused on symptomatic residents only
  • Employs a “Decision Tree”: PCR-based testing model beginning with COVID-19; if negative, then to respiratory viral pathogens; if negative, then to full respiratory panel testing including an antibiotic gene resistance test; if still negative, then contact the medical director with other testing recommendations
  • Certified Infection Preventionists provide continuous education and mentorship
*Note:  Facilities that choose Pinpoint must choose AMS lab partners for their COVID-19 testing

While the AMS clinical focus is primarily on long-term care, our infection control expertise has become an invaluable resource to businesses and government agencies nationwide. Through a detailed practice called Infection Surveillance, AMS monitors and manages infection prevention and control (IPC) practices in offices, warehouses, call centers, corporate headquarters, government buildings, schools, and more. Give your employees, visitors, contractors, and everyone you do business with the confidence of knowing you have the best processes and protocols in place to prevent infection from entering and spreading through your building.
