Diseases & Conditions Table - Continuing Care

The Diseases and Conditions table is designed to assist healthcare workers in care management and accommodation of patients with known or suspected diseases or conditions in acute care and equivalent settings. The table is organized in alphabetical order based on either the common or scientific spelling of the disease/condition or the microorganism that causes the disease.

Information on each disease/condition is divided into categories that include signs and symptoms, infectious substances, transmission route, precautions needed, duration of precautions, incubation period, period of communicability and any extra comments. Information about each disease/condition is available on a single page which can be printed out for hardcopy reference.

The table was developed by Alberta Health Services and Covenant Health Infection Control and Infectious Disease Professionals using evidence-based best practice standards and guidelines.
