Educational Session: Come hear PDI Clinical Science Liaison Deva Rea's session titled Beyond the Routine: Environmental Exceptions and Unusual Phenomena with Major Healthcare Implications. 

  • 1:30pm-2:00pm
  • Minneapolis Convention Center, Room 200 HIJ

This session will review some of the issues in infection prevention that are relatively unknown, misunderstood, and considered unusual. Ice machines, pharmacy compounding clean rooms, heater-cooler devices, ceiling tiles, lint, dust, HVACS, tap water, tape, and gauze- the number of potential reservoirs for pathogens is vast. Important environmental phenomena and outbreaks that have occurred will be highlighted. These events may be considered atypical or uncommon, however, they have been occurring with more visibility in recent years.
