Managing Infection Prevention During the Construction & Operation of Health Care Facilities™

12.5 CECs (1 CEC = 1 contact hour)

Proactively prevent infection in health care facilities during maintenance, renovation, and construction.

Designed for individuals directly involved in the construction, renovation, and operation of health care facilities, this program identifies the infection prevention issues that every contractor, facility manager, architect, and engineer must address on the job.

While working in a health care environment, you need to understand your unique role and be prepared to implement processes to protect patients, staff, and visitors from hospital-acquired infections. Through lectures, case study reviews, problem-solving exercises, and group discussions, you will become a more valuable member of the health care construction team.
