About this session:

Is your health care facility prepared for infection control? This discussion will explore the connection between infection control and super bugs, specifically how long super bugs live on surfaces, the right chemicals to clean those surfaces, and how to protect staff and other building inhabitants.

This course is ideal for in-house service providers, supervisors, managers, and healthcare professionals in nursing and environmental services departments.
