In this webinar, Dr Paul McDermott will discuss the ever-growing list of waterborne pathogens, focusing on those that present significant risks, particularly to patients receiving treatment in hospitals. He will cover some of the design features that are found commonly in water systems, which can increase the likelihood of colonisation, as well as the ways that water systems are used that increase risks of exposure to harmful bacteria.
The webinar will also look at the sort of controls that should be in place to manage risks and the types of checks that can provide assurance that this is the case.
