AMS Infection Prevention Partners - Customizable Infection Surveillance and Antimicrobial Stewardship programs to fit all Long-Term Care needs
Infection Surveillance should not be time consuming or difficult to implement. As a requirement of Federal Regulation F880 (infection prevention and control or IPC), it’s the most-cited violation year after year, topping the list yet again in 2020.
AMS Infection Prevention Partners is a clinical practice that builds Infection Surveillance platforms for F880 compliance, and — more importantly — to keep your residents and staff safe from all infections.
Successful surveillance identifies communicable diseases and infections before they spread. AMS has a unique approach to building and maintaining continuous surveillance systems to protect our seniors in long-term care.
Comprehensive Infection Surveillance
Sterisis, AMS' most comprehensive program, uses quarterly non-invasive respiratory panel testing and live remote monitoring of resident EHRs to prevent the potential spread of infectious diseases and combat antibiotic resistance facility-wide. Keeping surveillance on all infection activity and providing information for correct antibiotic use, AMS Infection Preventionists work with nursing facility clinicians to ease their IPC burden and promote better clinical outcomes among the entire resident population.
Two unique approaches to Outcome Surveillance: AMS provides both Targeted and Comprehensive Infection Surveillance. Your clinical leadership chooses which is best for your resident population.
Targeted Infection Surveillance
Welcome to Pinpoint, AMS' newest program, which features targeted surveillance focused specifically on symptomatic residents. AMS Infection Preventionists employ a unique testing protocol, which drills down deep to obtain accurate diagnosis of infection, and make appropriate treatment recommendations.
To provide immediate relief to facilities challenged by overworked and understaffed clinical teams due to COVID-19, AMS is currently offering Virtual Rounding as a "stand-alone" service to compliment your current Infection Surveillance programs.
Part of our other surveillance programs, Virtual Rounding is designed to immediately ease the burden of clinical staff by providing access to AMS doctors, RNs, DONs, LPNs, and Infection Preventionists, all who specialize in infection prevention and control in the Long-Term Care setting. Using both science and technology, AMS clinicians conduct daily virtual rounds on facility residents, highlighting potential infection issues, risk stratifying patients, pinpointing diagnoses, and offering educated care recommendations -- with no extra data entry or expensive platforms required by the facility.
