Description

On the heels of legionella outbreak, the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital successfully implemented an ASHRAE 188-compliant Water Safety Monitoring Plan. The hospital has also implemented an Air Safety Monitoring Plan. What has been the key to its success? Inter-disciplinary collaboration. Leveraging the knowledge of experts in infection prevention, clinical processes of care, construction, maintenance, and safety, UAB Medicine’s Air and Water Safety Monitoring Team changed the health system’s culture around infection prevention and patient safety. Through this session, participants will gain insights into how to work across departments to develop and implement Air and Water Safety Monitoring Plans at their own facilities.
