Do You Have Hitchhikers in your Building? Infection Control and Prevention

Bacteria hitchhike and latch on to surfaces and hands, so reducing this risk, must be part of an organization’s Infection Prevention Control program. Infections in our older adult population have high mortality rates and contaminated environmental surfaces is often a source. In this webinar, Cheri Fast will discuss the benefits of having a proactive approach to infection prevention and the importance of having an Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICAR) done, what is involved in an ICAR and who should get an ICAR. Fast will discuss common infection control tags and available resources to assist in your infection control program throughout your facility.
