Weekly Working Group Call, June 19, 2013

This week's call further explored the idea of the mobile phone (or other device) as a potential agent for transmitting infection in a healthcare setting. The slide deck is attached, and a more in-depth  rumination on the topic is found in my blog posting: http://www.osehra.org/blog/use-mobile-electronic-devices-health-care-hazardous-anyones-health

Thanks to Tony Seeger and Nancy Anthracite for volunteering to do additional research 'behind the firewall' at the VA to see if this is being addressed in a substantial way in the VHA system.

Bob Cook, from DSS, offers this link, too: http://www.webmd.com/cold-and-flu/news/20060426/clean-that-computer-keyboard.
