Skin infections are more common in older adults with weak immune systems. Scabies, a skin disease, is one of the infectious diseases we see in people being admitted to Haym Salomon Home. In such cases it is important to provide care quickly to prevent it spreading to other residents.
Gastroenteritis leads to an inflammation of the intestine and is caused by a viral or bacterial infection. So, symptoms may include abdominal cramps, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and nausea.
To reduce the risk of infections spreading from patient to patient, personal hygiene is vital. In addition, Haym Salomon Home For Nursing & Rehabilitation in Brooklyn NY adheres to the highest standards of hygienic food and drink preparation.
We also do regular deep cleaning to ensure our premises are always clean. These measures are all vital to help control the spread of gastroenteritis.
Our top priority is the patient’s comfort, health, and wellbeing. Our nursing staff are well trained in an array of preventive measures to keep patients safe. Our multilingual nursing staff and rehab therapists have lots of experience looking after patients with infectious diseases.
