PUZZLED BY WATERBORNE PATHOGENS? A PICTURESQUE JOURNEY
Presented by Jack Rihs, Vice President, Laboratory Services
Colonization of a healthcare water supply with potentially pathogenic bacteria is common. Tap water used for showering, bathing, drinking, ice preparation and through contact with contaminated medical devices pose a real risk of infection, especially to the immunocompromised. These infections result in significant morbidity, mortality, and financial burden on the institution. Join us on this picturesque journey as we take a closer look at five waterborne pathogens. Learn what these pathogens have in common, what media is required, and the types of infections that can occur.
