Algonquin, IL, November 5, 2013 — Failure to comply with infection control standards increases the risk for disease transmission and jeopardizes patient safety. The Richmond Institute’s new course, “Infection Control Is Not Optional: Dental Practitioners Need to Be Involved,” by Dr. Louis G. DePaola, addresses this important issue.
The course reviews the occurrence of healthcare associated infections (HAIs) and some of the ways in which they spread. Dr. DePaola touches on disease transmission prevention practices and the importance of vigilance of healthcare workers to keep themselves, and their patients, safe. He then delves deeper into recent infection control breaches in dentistry and how not only the patients, but the dental practitioners, were impacted.
