The pandemic has brought to light some of the major shortcomings and issues facing long term care in nursing homes and Dr. Buffy Lloyd-Krejci, also known as Dr. Buffy The Germ Slayer, is fighting for the need to prioritize and prepare long term care settings for the next emergent health crisis that may come.
Dr. Buffy is one of the foremost authorities on infection prevention and control in nursing homes and long-term care facilities and joins Jason Hartman for this revealing discussion outlined in her book. She is a frequent contributor and interview source for national and trade press concerning infection prevention and control and mitigation.
She is an advocate for the long term care industry and improved wages and conditions for its workers. This industry was already facing a staffing shortage before the pandemic and nursing homes were the last healthcare setting to get PPE. The number of people in long term care facilities will only get larger and we must correct a system that is not working and leaving our vulnerable populations behind.
