OnDemand Webinar (86 minutes)

Learning how infections are caused in a health care facility can be important to understanding infection prevention methods.Your surgical patient, your dialysis patient, your long-term care resident, in fact, all of your patients are at risk of developing a health care acquired infection. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that one in every 31 patients will develop an infection related to their care. As a health care worker, you too are at risk of exposure to infections. This topic will provide best practices to protect you and your patients from developing infections while in your facility.
