Hospital, Surgical/Ambulatory Care Center & Infection Control Services

Hospitals, Surgical Outpatient Centers and Long-Term Care facilities all face particular challenges with respect to indoor air quality, microbiological contamination from mold, bacteria and viruses, as the populations there are at heightened risk for respiratory, skin or internal infections during invasive surgical procedures.  And as COVID-19 infections continue to impact the U.S., widespread infections in Skilled Nursing Homes and other Long-Term Care Facilities continue.  To assist Healthcare Facilities in reducing COVID infection risks, Dr. Lynch authored an article describing steps that Long-Term Care Facilities can take to reduce COVID-19 infection risks.  The article, entitled “Practical Steps to Improve Air Flow in Long-Term Care Resident Rooms to Reduce COVID-19 Infection Risk” is available on the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association (JAMDA) website at this link.
