The enHealth Guidelines were published in 2015, as a guide for healthcare and aged care facilities to address the risks of legionella within their facilities. This presentation will give a background to the disease, and  go through some of what is required to produce the water risk management plans for a facility, along with some of the factors that need to be considered when producing the risk management plan. Other organisms of interest within the water systems of the health facilities will also be covered.
