We will review a series of studies that have examined the role of the environment in causing HAIs so the audience can determine how this information should be applied to their own facility risk assessments. We will present recommendations for developing a cleaning validation program and review selected recommendations contained in the CDC guidance on cleaning validation. There are a number of auditing tools recommended in the CDC guidance. We will review these tools and discuss potential limitations of each to outline where the tools can have the most impact.
