Legionella Water Safety Requirements
Presenter: Joseph Ham, Eldon Water

With the cases of Legionnaires’ Disease on the rise, a focus has been put on Healthcare Facilities where the CDC investigations show 33% of outbreaks occur.  Recent standards have put the responsibility on facilities to implement control strategies to reduce the risk for the spread of Legionnaires’ Disease and the diseases associated with other waterborne pathogens.

In this webinar, Eldon Water will discuss compliance with the recent CMS Memorandum: Requirement to Reduce Legionella Risk in Healthcare Facility Water Systems to Prevent Cases and Outbreaks of Legionnaires’ Disease (LD). 

Topics covered will include:

- Introduction to Legionella pneumophilia and other waterborne pathogens
- Expectations on Healthcare Facilities for compliance
- Understanding building risk
- Developing a Water Safety Program
- Validation of the program
- Ongoing execution and documentation
- Water remediation strategies

The Webinar will be approximately 50 minutes with a 10 minute Q and A at the end of the Webinar.
