Prepare, Prevent, Protect
COVID-19 has challenged our health care leaders, frontline nursing staff and personal caregivers in ways we couldn’t have imagined. Extraordinary times call for new infection prevention solutions. Comagine Health is partnering with the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health to offer a free innovative infection prevention and control program to long-term care facilities. This free education series provides the latest in infection prevention, including CDC’s Project Firstline curriculum, to long-term care facility staff in Nevada. We also offer free technical assistance and individual consultation.
