Dr. Rupp Setting the Record Straight on Transmission of Organisms via the Floor

Dr. Mark Rupp debated Curtis Donskey today regarding the role of the hospital floor in transmission of resistant pathogens. According to several in attendance, this was a great discussion! Key Point  Dr. Ashraf took away from this debate : Even though it is important to thoroughly clean floors, we need to remember that transmission of pathogens is more likely to happen due to lack of hand hygiene or not paying attention to high touch surfaces.
