Environment of Care, Construction and Remediation
Workshops - 2.5 hours
IPs may use industrial hygienists (IH) to help them with environmental or exposure sampling. Whether it be mold sampling for a water intrusion event, employee exposure monitoring, construction project, or routine water sampling, what do those reports mean when an IP receives the results and what should be done next?
While IHs have similar missions as IPs concerning patient and employee safety, IPs may not fully understand all the ways in which they can work with an IH, what to expect in an industrial hygiene report, and how to interpret and use the results. This session will highlight the roles of the IH in IPC and how to better understand environment sampling impacts the IP. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the IH role and have greater clarify on how to use their reports to protect patients and employees.
