Know where your facility keeps vaccine records for residents and staff. Does it vary by vaccine? How recent is the data that you can pull from your electronic health records or employee health records system?
Accessing this data is essential for tracking the implementation of new processes and your success during the project.
Some ways to improve documentation include:
Develop a standard process that lends itself to pulling routine reports on the immunization status of residents and staff
Send vaccine documentation information to IIS
Share your facility’s vaccination data with staff and residents, create an environment of transparency and accountability
