Ray Ranger Named Keynote Speaker at APIC Houston
Triple S Director of Healthcare Ray Ranger recently had the pleasure of being the keynote speaker at a Houston APIC Chapter Meeting. Present at the meeting were over 42 Infection Prevention specialists from around the Houston area. Helping to implement the meeting was Dan Trevis, sales consultant from Triple S Member High Point Sanitary Solutions. Dan is a very active member of the APIC Chapter and was a driving force behind the presentation on "Optimizing Cleaning Processes".
Ray's talk covered numerous aspects of infection prevention and environmental cleaning throughout a healthcare setting. Ray touched on how contaminated hospital surfaces play a considerable role in the transmission of dangerous pathogens including Clostridium difficile, and antibiotic-resistant organisms such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).
The main focus was on appropriate disinfection of high-touch surfaces and equipment that patients and healthcare personnel interact with throughout an average day. Following appropriate procedures with the correct products is necessary to reduce exposure to dangerous pathogens and keep both patients and staff safe. The presentation mapped real world evidence addressing environmental cleaning, with a particular focus on patient-centered outcomes.
