Infection Control and Legionella

With ever increasing health department spotlight on the control of bacterial disease such as Legionnaires and related infections, many organisations are faced with mounting costs for the control of these severe hazards.

Legionella are small gram-negative bacteria which can be found in water, in host oraganisms and adhering to the surface of pipes and other plumbing infrastructure.

Infection by Legionella occurs following inhalation or aspiration of aerosol droplets containing Legionella bacteria often generated by clinical devices and plumbing outlets such as showers and taps.
