The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world forever, and some of the most challenging work was done in nursing homes. In order to recognize the efforts that nursing homes have made to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have created the Blue Ribbon in COVID-19 Vigilance Award for Telligen QI Connect™ participants. The Blue Ribbon (and accompanying marketing toolkit) is presented to nursing homes that have achieved the following:
- Committed to have policies, processes and ongoing staff education to prevent the spread of COVID-19
- Staff vaccination rates of at least 95%
- Resident vaccination rates of at least 95%
- Resident booster rates of at least 90%
If you represent a nursing home that is prepared for COVID-19, we want to make it easy for you to share your achievements with your stakeholders, partners, residents and their families. Continue reading below to learn how you can receive the Blue Ribbon in COVID-19 Vigilance.
