Symposium spotlight: Steve MacArthur will explore the connections between EC and infection control

We’re only six weeks away from the 4th Annual Hospital Safety Center Symposium, and one of our sessions will grab the attention of not only safety officers, but infection preventionists. 

Steve MacArthur, safety consultant at The Greeley Company in Marblehead, MA, and resident blogger on Mac’s Safety Space, will present “Tying environment of care into infection control” at the symposium.
 
MacArthur’s session will dig into the connections The Joint Commission requires between the two disciplines and how surveyors will review this interaction.
 
Don’t forget that if you can’t make it in person to the Hospital Safety Center Symposium in Las Vegas, you can still join us virtually via a live Webcast of the conference over your computer. Virtual attendees will still enjoy full access to all course materials and the ability to ask questions remotely.
