Horne's CPD is entitled "Engineering vs Legionella, Pseudomonas and Retrograde Contamination of Domestic Water Services by Micro-organisms." and focuses on how engineering can help to mitigate the risk of retrograde contamination of hospital water services.

It is delivered in an enjoyable seminar format with various props and interesting practical demonstrations.

  • how biofilm will attach to almost any suface by electrostatic forces - irrespective of the smoothness of the surface or the substrate material
  • the potential negative impact of using strongly oxidising chemicals to treat pathogens in water systems - where they can irreversibly corrode brass and elastomeric components, resulting in catastrophic failure of system parts
  • the importance of outlet fittings in minimising the risk of retrograde contamination of healthcare taps
  • how regular thermal disinfection, paired with high velocity flushing, can easily be incorporated into a management regime to quickly achieve a considerable improvement to water quality and, by association, control of infection
