Inter-Facility Transfers
Proper interfacility communication ensures quality care as a patient/resident moves through the healthcare continuum. More importantly, communication of the patientís/residentís colonization or infection status prevents the spread of organisms- such as CRE and novel MDROs- to other facilities. LACDPH has compiled information and resources on how to ensure clear, timely, and constant communication between healthcare facilities- see below.

Resources

Interfacility Transfers Guide: Healthcare facilities can use this guide to understand how to use an inter-facility transfer form, develop contacts at facilities you share patients/residents with, and transfer infected/colonized patients/residents.
Interfacility Transfer Form: Inter-facility Transfer Form: Healthcare facilities may use this form to indicate a patientís infection/colonization status upon transfer to another facility. Make sure you attach final lab reports, medication lists, and other medically-important documents too!
