December 9, 2020

  • Every day, infection preventionists (IPs) and other healthcare personnel face significant challenges due to evolving technology, healthcare reform and, of course, time constraints. Choosing the right disinfectant products must be a carefully made decision but it shouldn't be burdensome.
