This 60-minute webinar will feature Dr. Rosie Lyles, MHA, MSc, Director of Clinical Affairs at Medline Industries. With the continuous battle of emerging pathogens, how do we prevent the spread of Staphylococcus aureus (staph), the leading pathogen that causes healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in US healthcare facilities? Staph is a common bacteria that can cause serious and costly infections, like surgical site infections, and patients are at higher risk for a staph infection when they have surgery. Current recommendations by healthcare organizations has led to a reduction in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in healthcare but the progress has slowed. In this webinar, Dr. Lyles will explore the benefits of evidence-based decolonization bundles and their critical role in preventing staph infections for patients having surgery.
