Webber Training - Upcoming Teleclasses

    • Infection control issues in healthcare construction, part 1 – renovation

      Date: April 18th, 2019

      Time: 10:30 am PST

      Speaker: Andrew Streifel, University of Minnesota

      Objectives:

      – Many healthcare facilities are in a perpetual state of construction. Outbreaks of nosocomial infections have historically been documented in association with construction and renovation actives within health care facilities. Evidence scientifically linking construction work and nosocomial infections as well as the efficacy and clinical relevance of infection control precautions is somewhat lacking but the empirical evidence and recommendations to support protective measures is steadily growing. It is imperative that a thorough, multidisciplinary approach towards an infection control plan is put clearly and firmly in place allowing health care construction projects to move forward with confidence that patient safety is the first specification.
