    When the coronavirus pandemic struck, facilities from around the country had to quickly assess how they would respond. Faced by many challenges, facilities, from across the country, battled on a number of different fronts: physically, socially, and legally. Using the resources they had available to them, including NCCHC Standards for Correctional Health Care, many of them were able to manage the pandemic instead of the pandemic managing them. Utilizing these standards and guidance from agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nationally recognized medical experts, leading scholars in our field, and several sheriffs with experience in both patrol and correctional practices, successes began to emerge. During this session, we will discuss how they did it.


    During this webinar, we will:

    • Share ways to improve quality in health services during pandemics
    • Discuss strategies for reducing liability and risk
    • Describe how nationally recognized standards can help mitigate your infectious disease risk
    • Hear how professionals are planning for the next pandemic
