The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the important role of facilities leaders to support infection control efforts. As healthcare reflects on the learnings from COVID-19, it’s clear priorities for facilities leaders have been permanently altered. For example, we face air quality considerations that now encompass the entire facility rather than a few key areas. In this session, we will include perspectives from key healthcare executives, who will discuss the role of facilities leaders in infection control and how to elevate these leaders to a more strategic level.
1. Define the strategic role of facilities leaders.
2. Evaluate key air quality considerations post-pandemic.
3. Explain the importance of air and surface quality in infection control.
4. Identify ways to continually measure air quality.
