The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued requirements that healthcare facilities must have a water management program to reduce Legionella risk in water systems. A proper water management program outlines a detailed prevention plan for keeping your water systems safe, and also gives your facility an agreed upon action plan and steps to take should positive Legionella samples be found.
