Healthcare Airborne Molecular Contamination Online Tutorial

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL | Posted on June 19th, 2007

Nosocomial infection, commonly referred to as healthcare associated infection (HAI), is a significant problem in healthcare environments around the world. In the United States alone, HAI claims nearly 100,000 lives per year and adds billions of dollars to the cost of care, and there are numerous factors that are combining to make the struggle with HAI increasingly difficult. Living in what is becoming known as the post-antibiotic era, new methods are required to combat HAI and there is increasing pressure to employ them. This class examines the magnitude of the problem, discusses in general what factors are contributing to it, and relates how technology developed for ultra-clean manufacturing facilities can be utilized to help reduce the incidence of HAI.

Joseph McGill, the instructor, has 20 years of engineering and construction experience, 15 of which have been cleanroom-related in the United States and abroad. He was a consultant to firms in the Science Based Industrial Park in Hsinchu, Taiwan, for five years, where he worked with numerous American, Asian, and European companies specializing in cleanroom design, manufacturing, and construction. With a background in semiconductor-related projects, he has become increasingly involved in the design and construction of healthcare facilities, with an emphasis on maintaining environmental conditions and controlling airborne contamination in critical spaces. He is a 1984 graduate of the School of Engineering at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

The per-location fee has no limit on the number of students who may participate at each location.* More information is available online at www.iest.org or by calling IEST at (847) 255-1561.
