  • Water Safety and Reducing the risk for Legionella

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 01/31/2018

    Legionella prevention and water safety

    Legionnaires’ disease is caused by a type of bacterium called Legionella. Those at risk include persons who are at least 50 years old, smokers, or those with underlying medical conditions such as chronic lung disease or immunosuppression. Outbreaks have been linked to poorly maintained water systems in buildings with large or complex water systems including hospitals and long-term care facilities. Transmission can occur via aerosols from devices such as showerheads, cooling towers, hot tubs, and decorative fountains.  CMS expects Medicare certified healthcare facilities to have water management policies and procedures to reduce the risk of growth and spread of Legionella and other opportunistic pathogens in building water systems.  This webinar will review the necessary steps to take and resources available to support your efforts in developing these prevention and management systems and processes.
