Please Join us for an Interesting Presentation on Risk Management for Infection Control during Healthcare Construction. This presentation is GBCI Approved for 1 CE Hour and AIA Approved for 1 LU/HSW. Along with public awareness, the fact cannot be understated that the emergence of both air and water-borne pathogens, MRSA and C Diff are serious factors in Healthcare. The importance of employee, patient safety, and exposure to these pathogens has become a major concern. The risk is even greater during construction. This presentation will address the following:
- How Healthcare Associated Infections are changing the safety and financial factor for Hospitals
- How Construction contributes to Healthcare Acquired Infections and adds risk to the project
- Healthcare organization goals – Do you as a Professional meet them?
