Learn Strategies for Maintaining Clean, Safe Environment During Pandemic

As healthcare facilities encourage their patients and staff to feel comfortable coming back to their facilities, doing so as safely as possible is a primary objective. This will require long-term planning, comprehensive solutions, and consultations with experts from both the science and industry communities. The months – perhaps years – ahead will probably remain volatile and dynamic, but there are reasons to remain optimistic. The two-part webinar series Continuing with Confidence in Healthcare Facilities will be offered from 11 a.m. to noon EDT Aug. 11 and 18.

The Aug. 11 session will describe several approaches to consider when evaluating a comprehensive strategy. Participants will learn about important programs and solutions that can help to eliminate harmful pathogens, both in the air and on surrounding surfaces. They will also explore how to identify people with elevated skin temperatures and be able to track high-risk situations through contact tracing.

The Aug. 18 webinar will give participants a deeper understanding of important programs and solutions that can help to create and maintain a healthy Indoor Air Quality program. Some of these strategies are cloud-based analytics; creative heating, ventilation and air conditioning strategies; and various sophisticated and sustainable energy management programs.

The webinars are offered free of charge, but members must register to receive dial-in instructions. Questions about the webinars should to be directed to Kristen Hammock at the MHA.
