The key to Infection Control and Prevention and Antimicrobial Stewardship is better identification of actual infectious agents.


Sterisis, AMS Onsite's most comprehensive program, uses quarterly non-invasive rapid-result PCR testing for 37 distinct respiratory pathogens (including COVID-19) and live remote monitoring of resident EHRs in real time to maintain control of the spread of infectious diseases and combat antibiotic resistance. Our Infection Preventionists work hand-in-hand with nursing facility clinicians to ease their ICP burden and promote better resident outcomes.
