Memorial Minute - September 20, 2019
September 20, 2019
September 8th-14th was Environmental Services (EVS) Week. Memorial Medical Center honored the EVS professionals for the important contributions they make every day to keep the healthcare environment clean and safe for patients and staff. EVS is integral to every healthcare system’s infection prevention effort. With emerging infectious diseases, contagious viral strains, and antibiotic-resistant ‘superbugs’ which are a major threat for healthcare institutions large and small, knowledge of proper infection control measures within the healthcare setting is of utmost importance. The prevention of infectious disease is the primary concern for our EVS workers. Help us celebrate by saying ‘thank you’ by being respectful to them for the hard work they do all year long.
