About the Webinar
At any given time, 1 in 20 hospital patients has a Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAI). The implementation of Medicare's Never Events policy and the passage of the Affordable Care Act have heightened the importance of practices that increase patient safety such as using touch surfaces that continuously kill disease-causing bacteria. Hear from the experts at Copper Development Association as they guide you through the importance of using antimicrobial copper surfaces and the recent clinical trial that found reduction of infection rates by using copper surfaces in Intensive Care Units.
By attending this webinar, you will:
- Learn the role of bacterial surface contamination on patient safety
- Understand the facts from the latest research on the benefits of using copper surfaces
- Ask questions about how to use antimicrobial copper surfaces in your hospital
