ASHE 56th Annual Conference & Technical Exhibition


1067 - Collaborate to Combat Construction-Related Infections


Jul 16, 2019 9:45am ‐ Jul 16, 2019 10:45am


Credits: None available.

Description

Despite the shared desire by the Facilities team to prevent construction related deaths in hospital settings and their counterparts in Development and Construction and Infection Prevention, thousands of brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers succumb to construction related infection deaths each year. This session will show attendees how we bridged these historically large gaps, developed a culture of accountability and transparency, implemented education at critical junctures and created a culture of safety where anyone, regardless of whether they are an internal employee or external contractor, felt safe enough to speak up and report unsafe conditions.

Learning Objectives:

  • List the reasons a cohesive team including facility management, infection prevention, and development and construction is more effective at creating a culture of safety than departments working independently.
  • Apply the tool kit to begin a journey to excellence.
  • Evaluate your facility‚Äôs place on this journey.
  • Discuss methods and processes to enhance communication and collaboration between internal and external partners working to make a safe environment.

Speaker(s):

  • Herman Johannesmeyer, PE, CHFM, Area Director-Facilities Operations, Banner University Medical Center, Tucson, AZ
  • Brandie Anderson, BS, RN, BSN, MPH, CIC, Infection Preventionist, BUMCT
  • Kristian Watkins, MBA, Development and Construction-Senior Project Manager, Banner University Medical Center, Tucson, AZ
