Get to grips with CPE

Infection control specialist, Cairn Care, has launched a free fact sheet on CPE (carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae) infections to help care homes to control its transmission.   

To help prevent CPE being transmitted from person-to-person in care homes, Cairn Care has put together a free fact sheet, which includes important tips to help you prevent a CPE outbreak and advice on what to do if you have an outbreak in your care home.

Dr. Peter Binns, managing director of Cairn Care says: “Spread is clearly a growing concern… particularly the case in care homes, as the elderly are more likely to have been an inpatient at a hospital, where there is a greater likelihood of contracting CPE. What’s more, CPE is likely to be more dangerous to people who are immunocompromised, which is more likely to be the case within the care home resident demographic.”
