Placement of persons receiving treatment

Home care is preferred if the situation allows it, however if receiving treatment the patient is placed in a single-person room with a dedicated bathroom. The patient should be housed in the same room for the duration of their stay in the facility to the extent possible. To limit exposure and conserve PPE, facilities could consider designating entire units with dedicated health care personnel. Keywords: infection precautions, protection
