Brandes R, Miranda E, Bonner A, Baehrend J, Fulmer T, Lenoci-Edwards J. Leveraging National Nursing Home Huddles for Rapid COVID-19 Response. Geriatrics. 2021;6(2):62.
This article describes the use of daily 20-minute huddles with nursing home staff across the US to rapidly identify and implement best practices to reduce COVID-19-related morbidity, mortality, and transmission. In addition to leveraging the huddles concept, the six-month COVID-19 Rapid Response Network for Nursing Homes also fostered connections between nursing homes and refocused the national narrative on optimism for nursing home care response efforts.
