Case Control, Cohort, and Other Studies
Survey of Long Term Care Facilities, 2005
In 2005, FoodNet conducted a survey of long term care facilities to assess food preparation practices. The survey evaluated included general food preparation; the types of beef, poultry, eggs, and other foods provided to residents; and policies on use of irradiated beef, irradiated poultry, and pasteurized shell eggs. Results showed that only three long term care facilities of 865 surveyed completely followed national recommendations for prevention of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
