Getting so many sales approaches about waterline testing kits, tablets, filters, isolated water bottle, etc. Glad to have a reference for the issue.
Seriously, such a new liability in every office with news media spreading stories of the pediatric disasters. Couldn't help the Marathon Man reference.
Covid questions continually n my office. Glad to have a course that addresses aerosols and water contamination. Happy to tell patients I'm up on this aspect of infection control to prevent cross-contamination.
Will use referneces in the course to answer patient questions about office procedures to prevent cross infection
