Though this is the shortest on-demand course, it is by no means the least important. Performing hand hygiene and garbing in a detailed, systematic, and consistent way is one of the fundamental aspects of contamination control. Failure in garbing work practices has been frequently recognized as the root cause or a contributing cause of microbial excursions. This course explores all aspects of hand hygiene and garbing and initial gloved fingertip sampling based on USP 797 requirements (both 2008 and 2019) as well as CriticalPoint recommended best practices. It is taught by one of the foremost experts in the nuances of garbing and contamination control for sterile compounding.
