The University of Toledo Medical Center will hold a town hall meeting focusing on the “Wash in-Wash out” campaign and procedures.

The town hall will take place Tuesday, Oct. 21, at 11:30 a.m. in the Four Seasons Bistro Atrium.

A panel of administrators will discuss “Wash in-Wash out” and answer questions about the policy.

The panel will feature David Morlock, CEO of UTMC and executive vice president for finance and administration; Dr. Carl Sirio, chief operating, clinical and medical officer at UTMC and senior associate dean for clinical affairs in the College of Medicine and Life Sciences; and Dr. Christopher Cooper, dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences.

“Wash in-Wash out” focuses on the importance of hand washing in patient-care areas. It also outlines the options available to staff; these include traditional soap and water and waterless sanitizer.

UTMC staff members are encouraged to attend the event. Attendees will be eligible to win tickets to an upcoming Toledo Walleye or Detroit Red Wings game.

Immediately following the town hall, a special celebration will be held in recognition of International Infection Prevention Week. Complimentary pumpkin cupcakes and other items will be offered.
