The August issue of EC News has a 10-page article on mold problems in hospitals. Over the past year, we have read and heard a lot more coming out of TJC on this topic. In fact, dedicating 10 pages on this subject indicates the importance of this topic. Here’s what should be on your radar screen.

The article includes action steps you can take to contain or prevent mold contamination. Further, they reprinted two different tables from the CDC:

  • How mold pathogens get into the environment
  • Infection prevention and control measures for construction

Make sure you share this information with facilities and infection prevention staff. Also, perform a gap analysis to determine your relative risks and readiness for preventing or managing mold.
