Join MiSHE and SMSHE members for a 1-hour presentation hosted by Quality Air Service, Inc. & Phoenix Controls focusing on HAI (Hospital Acquired Infections) and SSI’s (Surgical Site infections) which are a growing, costly concern within our Healthcare Facilities.
The presentation will explore the impact of the environment and how it is becoming more of a target of study and interest to manage the infection risk. We will share the results from a 3rd party, which tests a proposed engineering control solution that may improve outcomes by reducing the risk of wound site infections through improved environmental contamination control which optimizes procedure rooms and allows ICUs to be more safely used as procedure rooms when needed. This presentation will also introduce a new solution and concept of addressing the environmental risk by correlating the relationship between the airborne environmental parameters and the potential for elevated contamination risk. In ORs, procedure rooms, and ICUs, a more holistic approach to analyzing and controlling environmental parameters is necessary to point to or even predict, in near real-time, the increase in the risk of microbial contamination inside and outside aseptic zones.
The content is based on an AIA approved presentation given by David Rausch, Critical Environment Specialist for Healthcare, followed by a Q&A session with James Barrette, Sales Support Engineer, both combined to decades of expertise in applications and field practice.
Invitations will also be sent to registered participants on the morning of the webinar.
