AHE Cleaning Protocol’s Impact on the Incidence of Pathogens that Cause HAI's in Hospital Patient Rooms

The Association for the Healthcare Environment, along with the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management teamed up to build awareness around healthcare environmental factors, including patient area surfaces, and their potential to contribute to HAI and disease transmission.  Both organizations wanted to evaluate whether following an evidence-based, peer-reviewed cleaning protocol, would affect contamination levels and the incidence of pathogens that cause HAIs. More>>

The result of the project is the AHE and ASHRM Toolkit for Environmental Services and Risk Management Professionals.  This toolkit showcases the informative, timely and thought-provoking 60-minute pre-recorded, on-demand webinar, "Evidence-Based Environmental Hygiene Measures to Mitigate Risk for Healthcare Associated Infections and Improve Outcomes."
