DKI is pleased to announce we have partnered with Gearhart & Associates, LLC to bring even more knowledge and training to our member companies to maintain a safe environment for patients, families, staff and practitioners!

DKI offers its member companies growth and training opportunities throughout each year. Adding to this curriculum, the Gearhart hands-on healthcare course complements The Linders Health Institute training already provided to our DKI members. By participating in this additional initiative, utilizing containment systems with disinfection/decontamination technologies (STARC) in tandem with the development of Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) protocols, provides optimal risk management and infection control procedures and results. Taking our members from a theoretical understanding of ICRA to real world practical application, the course covers what can go wrong and how to avoid it, barrier management, installation and maintaining controls, liability risk management, pricing strategies, working with the hospital’s general contractors to become the “go to” for all their ICRA needs, and more.
