Healthcare High Risk Quadrants that Enhance Infection Prevention; Design Recommendations
Tuesday, March 6
This Prism EH&S presentation will focus on key design components to minimize the risk of hospital acquired infections (HAIs) in high risk quadrants, including the ER, NICU, transplant and cardiac units.
With the increase in HAIs and MDROs (multiple drug resistant organisms) it is essential to focus energy and resources on infection prevention. Therefore, proactive design of healthcare buildings to prevent cross contamination with infectious agents through air, water or surface contact is critical to minimizing the risk of infection in the quadrant.
Presenter: Dr. Jennifer Wagner, Principal Infection Control Consultant at PrismEH&S
