How clean is the air in your OR? Is the HEPA filter and the positive pressure of the room enough to protect your patient from contaminants in the air, or is there more to it than meets the eye? Join us in this eye-opening episode as we discuss infection prevention with air expert Dr. Linda D. Lee, public health practitioner and president of Linda D. Lee Healthcare Consultants. We’ll learn more about OR design, discuss the necessity of laminar flow (Is it really necessary?), and talk about the ways OR staff either hinder or help in our shared goal of preventing infections.
