-Infections are a significant source of illness and death in the long term care setting. It is estimated that between 1.6 million and 3.8 million infections occur annually among patients in long term care facilities. Infections account for up to half of all transfers from long term care facilities to hospitals and result in an estimated 150,000 to 300,000 hospital admissions annually. Numerous studies indicate that pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and skin and soft-tissue infections account for nearly 75 percent of all infections acquired in the long term care setting. This guideline focuses on management of the four most common types of infections occurring in long term care - urinary tract, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and skin infections. The guideline also discusses infection control, colonization versus true infection, and antibiotic resistance in long term care facilities.
