The NCCEH has released Evaluating the Carbon Monoxide Monitoring and Response Framework in Long-term Care Facilities: A Brief Guide. 

As described on the NCCEH website:

This guide is intended for public health practitioners, facility/property maintenance managers, risk managers, occupational hygienists, clinicians, or other persons working at long-term care facilities (residential care facilities, nursing homes, seniors’ residences, care occupancies, etc.) when they:

  • have implemented a carbon monoxide (CO) policy in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) consistent with the framework described in the Guide for Implementing the CO Monitoring and Response Framework in LTCFs,
  • want to evaluate the CO policy and understand how evaluation, built-in from the start, can lead to important improvements and better protection of residents
  • want to identify the facilitators and barriers to successful policy implementation and produce recommendations to guide future policy decisions.
