Legionnaires’ Disease


Workers in the healthcare industry deal with many people—both patients and coworkers—that have compromised immune systems. Because people with compromised immune systems are more likely to develop Legionnaires’ disease, healthcare workers and their patients are at an elevated risk. Learners that successfully complete this course will display the ability to recognize and/or identify the characteristics, sources and symptoms of Legionnaires' disease, and its related required/recommended safe work practices. This course is intended for those who work in any environment or occupation that may bring them in contact with water or air-conditioning systems that may expel liquid containing legionella bacterium.
