oneSOURCE Expands Reach to Help Long-Term Care and Assisted Living Facilities Decrease Infection Spread Due to COVID-19

July 14, 2020

oneSOURCE, a leading healthcare management solution, announced that its user-friendly Long-Term Care Database for Infection Prevention is now available and includes thousands of Instructions for Use (IFUs) and other manufacturers' documents for the cleaning and sterilization of reusable medical and non-medical equipment found in long-term care and assisted living facilities. Access to the Long-Term Care Database for Infection Prevention will aid in keeping patients and staff safe as well as maintaining compliance requirements set forth by leading governing agencies for infection prevention such as CDC, CMS and OSHA.

“Over the last few months, COVID-19 highlighted how easily infectious diseases can spread within long-term care and assisted living facilities where high-risk populations live. oneSOURCE has a unique opportunity to provide this sector of the medical field with resources that will aid in managing infection prevention,” said Jack Speer, co-founder and president of oneSOURCE. “We want to change the narrative and feel it’s our responsibility to create the safest environment for all patients and, through our easy-to-use and convenient database, we will continue to connect medical professionals with the tools they need to thrive.” 

Long-term care and assisted living facilities will receive a curated supply of applicable manuals and documents related to medical and non-medical grade equipment utilized in a facility. With a focus on manuals and parts lists for items such as laundry equipment, beds, PPE, patient monitoring devices, electric razors, walkers, glucometers, gait belts and more, facility workers will be equipped with effective and functional methods to properly maintain compliance according to CDC, CMS and OSHA. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, these procedures will help facilities provide quality patient care and mitigate infection prevention by also emphasizing accurate sterilization processes. 

“As we’ve seen with long-term care facilities around the country, safety and maintenance play a vital role in saving people’s lives, especially vulnerable populations,” said Heather Thomas, CMO and executive VP of sales and marketing of oneSOURCE. “In their recent guidance related to COVID-19, AHCA and NCAL recommended that long-term care centers immediately ensure that they’re cleaning and disinfecting non-disposable medical equipment ‘according to manufacturers’ instructions’ and we’re here to make that as easy as possible for providers. COVID-19 has only intensified our resolve to provide powerful healthcare solutions to every facet of the medical industry.” 

The Long-Term Care Database for Infection Prevention is an extension of the breadth of databases oneSOURCE offers focusing on global pandemics, facilities maintenance, tissues and implants and other integral compliance fields. As a pillar of the sterile processing community with more than 80 percent market share, oneSOURCE’s databases have been a reliable resource for top healthcare organizations such as Mayo Clinic, Sutter Health, VHA and HCA.
