CMS Beyond the Policy: Nursing Home Series for Frontline Clinicians and Staff

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is airing the first episode in a series of short podcasts for frontline nursing home staff.

The series is designed to reinforce training and infection control practices in nursing homes to help combat the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

This podcast features a discussion between Dr. Shari Ling, CMS Deputy Chief Medical Officer and David Wright, Director of CMS’s Quality Safety & Oversight Group.

They will be talking about three important actions every frontline clinician or caregiver can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within nursing homes and sharing reminders about personal protective equipment (PPE).
