NSF International announced it is partnering with Homeyer Consulting Services, Inc. to provide healthcare facilities with specialized water systems management services to control Legionella and other waterborne pathogens. The partnership will help hospitals and other healthcare facilities better manage their water systems, meet government requirements and protect patients from waterborne illnesses such as Legionnaires’ disease. The partnership will support hospitals, long-term care facilities and other healthcare facilities, in meeting a US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirement to reduce the risk of the potentially deadly Legionella bacteria and other pathogens in their water systems. The federal mandate applies to more than 20,000 healthcare facilities.
