Professionals Share Advice and TipsIn November, 100 senior living professionals signed up for the Bed Bug 101 Webinar, and another group of individuals continued their training via the NAB certified Advanced Webinar Series: Effective Bed Bug Detection and Management in Senior Living Communities. Orkin Commercial Services, Willis, LLC, and Elmcroft Senior Living all presented a wealth of information to provide senior living companies the necessary tools to minimize the risk of a bed bug infestation and manage bed bugs if found in their community.
“The Effective Bed Bug Detection and Management in Senior Care Living Communities webinar provided invaluable information to enhance our current bed bug policy and risk management program,” said Shannon Dentel, RN, Director of Clinical Compliance and Public Policy at Carlton Senior Living and participant in the advanced webinar series. “PowerPoint presentations, management tips, action checklist, white paper, and sample policies gave us the tools we need to ensure we take proactive steps to help prevent outbreaks from occurring and know how to immediately respond if they are detected.”
Among the valuable information shared, Shannon outlined her top five important takeaways for senior living providers.
