Testing For Infectious Diseases In Prisons
Jails and prison systems are presented with unique challenges for infection control due to crowding, close contact, shared quarters, decreased cleanliness and exposure to open wounds. Bacteria thrive in these conditions and pose a threat of viruses spreading.
Not only can infections spread among inmates, but officers and prison staff often come in contact with areas that are ideal for bacteria growth and contamination. Testing for infectious diseases in prisons and jails can help reduce the spread of these dangerous microorganisms.
Testing Can Help Reduce Infection Rates
Prison and jail facilities should conduct regular microbial testing to determine if disease-causing bacteria are present, which can help reduce the potential for infection among both staff and inmates. Consider these common illnesses that spread easily throughout correctional facilities.
- Hepatitis C
- Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
- Chicken Pox
- Valley Fever
- Legionnaire’s Disease
