Health care facility managers have joined infection control practitioners on the frontlines of infection prevention. To safeguard patients from infection risks related to the physical environment, facility managers must have a clear understanding of the infection risks and the role the physical environment plays. Likewise, infection preventionists need to have an understanding of how building systems such as plumbing and HVAC work. This session details the specific high-risk areas that facility managers need to actively monitor, strategies to mitigate these risks and how to respond to issues related to potential life-threatening infections and outbreaks. Participants will also gain insight into how to effectively communicate and collaborate with infection prevention practitioners for a successful partnership.
