Findings by the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control have identified emerging infections, pandemic bacteria, fungi, viruses, and more antibiotic-resistance on a regular basis. The uptick is particularly concerning to health care organizations facing financial penalties and reduced Medicare reimbursements due to hospital acquired infections (HAIs). However, there has been progress made in infection prevention, both in combating the spread of and identifying primary sources of germs.

Attend this webcast to learn more about the increased focus on infection control in the "Patient Hot Zone" that comprises the 36-inch zone around the patient's bed and has the potential to be more contaminated than the patient's restroom. Industry expert and author Darrel Hicks will discuss this zone's contribution to HAIs, as well as the growing body of evidence linking soft surfaces as fomites and the problems they represent.
