Information for care facilities
Scabies outbreaks in care facilities can be very troublesome. The facility itself bears primary responsibility for stopping the spread of scabies and treating affected patients. You can request help from the GGD. The GGD will then advise you on the measures you should take, such as:
- identifying those with symptoms;
- additional diagnostics, if necessary;
- hygiene and treatment recommendations.
For information about the steps you should take in the event of a scabies outbreak in your care facility, see the leaflet Scabiës in uw zorginstelling (Scabies in your care facility) (only available in Dutch).
