Legionella Webinar: Deciphering the on-going requirements of managing your Legionella Water Management Plan (WMP) can be confusing for healthcare facility management and personnel. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) memorandum from 2018 retracted initial guidance on Legionella, leading to more confusion, and 2021 was a big year for updates in regulations, standards, and guidelines. Join panelists from the ASHRAE 188 committee and ASSE 12080-certified water treaters as well as experts in Legionella testing and healthcare facility leaders to learn about these updates and how they will impact healthcare facilities.
