MRSA, Staph & Infection Prevention for the Maritime Industries
This dynamic program focuses on techniques for avoiding MRSA & staph outbreaks and also teaches crews how to recognize the signs of serious infections. It was developed with leading experts in the maritime medical field and intended specifically for maritime personnel. It also teaches crewmembers how to recognize the signs of serious infections before they become life-threatening and respond to both individual cases and outbreaks.
On a vessel, prevention and quick response are essential because infections can spread quickly in close quarters. It is especially important to respond quickly to MRSA and other dangerous staph infections. For less virulent infections such as colds and flu, prevention is also essential—and cost effective. Countless man hours are lost each year to infections that could have been prevented.
