Legionella and Pathogen Testing for Nursing Homes, Senior Living and Long-Term Care

Legionella Control Systems provides Legionella and pathogen testing, control, remediation, and mitigation, as well as water management programs for healthcare facilities including nursing homes, critical access hospitals, and senior living and long-term care facilities.

As a truly independent Legionella control provider, Legionella Control Systems has the unique ability to consider all Legionella remediation and Legionella mitigation strategies. Not all companies have this independence because they are heavily invested in one particular approach to Legionella control. You can trust Legionella Control Systems to recommend the best Legionella control approach for your particular situation.

Per CMS S&C 17-30-Hospitals/CAHs/NHs, “Requirement to Reduce Legionella Risk in Healthcare Facility Water Systems to Prevent Cases and Outbreaks of Legionnaires’ Disease (LD), Facilities must develop and adhere to policies and procedures that inhibit microbial growth in building water systems that reduce the risk of growth and spread of legionella and other opportunistic pathogens in water. This policy memorandum applies to Hospitals, Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), and Long-Term Care (LTC).

From the memorandum:

42 CFR §483.80 for skilled nursing facilities and nursing facilities
“The facility must establish and maintain an infection prevention and control program designed to provide a safe, sanitary, and comfortable environment and to help prevent the development and transmission of communicable diseases and infections.”

42 CFR §485.635(a)(3)(vi) for critical access hospitals (CAHs):
CAH policies must include: “A system for identifying, reporting, investigating and controlling infections and communicable diseases of patients and personnel.”

Legionella Control Systems can help skilled nursing facilities, nursing facilities, critical access hospitals (CAHs), and other healthcare facilities comply with these requirements. Contact our experts at 888-416-8626 for immediate help or email us at info@legionellacontrolsystems.com.
