Engineering vs Pseudomonas, Legionella—the retrograde contamination of hospital water supplies
Props, videos, interesting (even amusing) practical demonstrations set Horne Engineering’s CPD presentations far apart from death-by-Powerpoint offerings.
It gives the authoritative Horne philosophy on how engineering can help mitigate the risk of retrograde contamination by pathogens upon hospital domestic water systems.
The importance of good hand hygiene, the growing threat of antibiotic resistance and the need to reduce reservoirs of infection in the healthcare setting are key points in this highly educational presentation.
Some myths are busted: how biofilm will attach to almost any surface, irrespective of its smoothness, and exactly why removing your tap’s outlet fitting is just not a good idea. The pros and cons of chemical vs thermal disinfection are discussed as well as the importance of elevated velocity flushing for improving water quality. It’s comprehensive, straight-talking, thought-provoking, and memorable.
