It is our great pleasure to celebrate Respiratory Care Practitioners this week! They are critical to the excellent care of our patients and in the prevention of ventilator associated events such as ventilator associated pneumonia – so say congratulations and thank them for their efforts this week!
To help kick off the week, Dr. Cawcutt and Joleen Strohsahl spoke to our respiratory care practitioners on the algorithms of ventilator associated events, bundled care, workflows and how infection control defines and reports these rates. There was an excellent conversation on ways we can continue to improve the care of our patients every day.
Prevention of all Healthcare Associated Infections is truly a team effort and we are grateful to have such fantastic colleagues as part of our multidisciplinary teams.
