Abstract

As healthcare transitions to the home environment, there is an increasing need to prevent and control infections traced to telehealth equipment. Background information about infection control is presented, and the need for a survey of agency cleaning policies is described. Findings from 31 agencies using telehealth equipment are described followed by suggested Best Practice Guidelines for the cleaning of telehealth equipment.
