Infection prevention for dummies is a big topic, but to keep this webinar "pocket size", I stick to cleaning and housekeeping wisdom as it relates to keeping you and those you love safe and healthy. The simple cleaning of environmental surfaces may be one of the key defenses in the future battle against infectious disease. With antibiotic-resistant organisms proliferating on common touch-points for up to 58 or more days, the study of cleaning is becoming all-important.
