Wava Truscott: Lint – Patient Enemy Number One

This week on Beyond Clean we speak with Dr. Wava Truscott, President & Founder Truscott MedSci Associates, LLC.  She has authored over 70 articles, co-authored the Microbiological section of the AAMI Sterilization Recommended Practices and was the U.S. delegate for ISO’s Medical Device Biocompatibility on Systemic Toxicity Testing for the developing European Union.  Areas of career emphasis have included the adverse consequences of particle contamination of the surgical wound, unplanned hypothermia during surgery and the prevention of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Wava has approached HAI reduction as an overall effort including Environmental Services, Sterile processing, Infection Prevention, Nursing staff, physicians, patients and visitors.
