Infection Control Practitioners may find navigating the water microbiology requirements in the 2019 Amendment 2 difficult.  Environmental microbiology is not usually specifically taught, many do not have CSSD qualifications and it is typically learned on the job.  This lecture will systematically explore the microbiological tests required, and bring understanding to the principles and rationale underlying their inclusion in AS 4187.  Out of specification results will also be explored.
