Long-Term Care Facility Outbreak Resources


  

Suspect or Confirmed Outbreaks are considered a Category I disease and should be reported to Public Health immediately.

Long-term care facilities (LTCF) are required by State Statute 252 to report single cases of notifiable diseases to their local health department. Category I diseases require immediate notification by telephone; Category II diseases are required to be reported within 72 hours upon recognition of a case or suspected case either by entering the data into the Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) or through notification of their local public health agency. A complete list of notifiable diseases and conditions can be found in Wisconsin Administrative Code DHS 145 Appendix A or at http://dhs.wisconsin.gov/communicable/diseasereporting/index.htm

Any case of a lab confirmed pathogen or organism should be reported to Public Health, even if it is only one case.

A LTCF is defined as any Skilled Nursing Facility, Assisted Living Facility, Community-Based Residential Facility or Residential Care Apartment Complex.
