Nick Kovacic, Dickson Hospital and Clinical Application Specialist, comments, "All too often, managers of various hospital departments and clinical services tend to think that the regulations and liability issues requiring temperature and/or humidity monitoring are strictly a worry for departments and clinics other than theirs. In truth, there are few areas in a hospital or clinical practice where environmental monitoring is not an issue -- for compliance, liabilities, and/or cost controls. Dickson created this guide to enable hospital and clinical practice managers to quickly master the environmental monitoring issues relevant to their organization and the practical steps required for regulatory compliance and liability-proofing operations."
