Quantifying Clean: Role of Surfaces in Healthcare-Associated Infection

Matthew Ziegler, MD, MSCE

Assistant Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology

University of Pennsylvania

Dr. Ziegler is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Biostatistics Epidemiology and Informatics (DBEI), Senior Scholar at the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB) at the University of Pennsylvania, and an Associate Medical Director of Healthcare Epidemiology, Infection Prevention and Control at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. His clinical research program focuses on the prevention of healthcare-associated infections in immunocompromised patients and the epidemiology of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) within the hospital built environment. His research is supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control Prevention Epicenters program. His presentation will focus on the role of surfaces in the healthcare environment, specifically how bacteria are shared between patients and surfaces and how improved environmental cleaning may prevent healthcare-associated infection.
