Disinfection and Sterilization: Best Practices for Infection Prevention
Meet the Speaker:
William A. Rutala, Ph.D., M.P.H
IP Competency: Novice
Duration: 60 minutes
Each year in the US there are approximately 46,500,000 surgical procedures and about 10 million gastrointestinal endoscopies. All invasive procedures involve contact by a medical device or surgical instrument with the patient's sterile tissue or mucous membrane. A major risk of all such procedures is the introduction of infection. Our speaker will review the recommendations that should improve disinfection and sterilization practices in healthcare facilities. In addition to discusses best practices, Dr. Rutala will discuss at least two issues/controversies that still exist in disinfection and sterilization.
