Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care
NSF Health Sciences, an NSF International company, and the National Environmental Health Association will bring together professionals from a wide variety of industries, including health care, to discuss the growing concern of Legionella outbreaks at the third annual Legionella Conference.
The theme for the next Legionella Conference, Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care, centers on how hospitals, water utilities, health departments, industry and regulators can work together to identify best practices for prevention of disease in hospitals, long-term care centers and skilled nursing homes. Join the conversation on how we can work toward safer health care facilities.
A virtual special session of the annual Legionella Conference co-hosted by NSF Health Sciences and the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) will focus on disease prevention from waterborne pathogens during a public health crisis.
To avoid a dramatic increase in Legionnaires disease, there are several actions that building owners should take now and prior to returning buildings to full service to reduce hazardous conditions caused by the COVID-19 low building occupancy rates.
