In Long-Term Living magazine's "Challenges" podcast series, industry experts are asked to help solve problems within the long-term care and post-acute care environments.

A recent podcast addresses one of the trickiest obstacles to cleaning/housekeeping: Disinfecting soft, non-launderable surfaces such as upholstery, carpeting and draperies.

In this podcast, Dr. Kelly Reynolds, MSPH, PhD, associate professor at the University of Arizona’s Zuckerman College of Public Health, talks about the specific issues of infection control on soft surfaces in skilled nursing spaces.

Resources mentioned in this podcast include:

Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE)

Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC)

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
