Responding to Legionella positive samples in healthcare sites

Has your healthcare site ever had a Legionella positive result, if so do you know how to respond to the positive result?

HTM 0401 has an excellent chart that explains how to remediate a Legionella positive result depending on whether it is a pre-flush or post-flush sample.

Make your life less complex by following its recommendations, making sure you keep a log of your actions so you can show organisational learning if ever the case arises.
