ISSA

The introduction of a water-free patient care program and subsequent removal of sinks in intensive care units (ICU) has resulted in a significant reduction in bacteria colonization rates.

FACILITY EXECUTIVE

Galvanic corrosion refers to the damage that occurs to an asset when two different kinds of metal are joined in a corrosive environment.
