Audio Conference - Protect Against Legionella (and its nasty little friends)

Scott Jackson

On September 7th, NYSHFA/NYSCAL will host an Audio Conference entitled "Protect Against Legionella (and its nasty little friends)". In this audio conference we will discuss how you can protect your facility— patients, staff, visitors (and enterprise value)—from disease outbreaks caused by pathogens  that grow in facility plumbing systems, including Legionnella, nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM), Acinetobacter, and others. We will discuss what these diseases are, how organisms grow in the system, and how to control that growth. We also will discuss how to respond (and how NOT to respond) to an outbreak caused by these organisms. We will discuss how to remediate a contaminated plumbing system, protect residents and staff in the meantime, work with the health department, and communicate with residents, families, staff, and the media.
