“Innovation is at the heart of our company’s mission to help healthcare institutions across the country save lives by reducing HAIs,” said Debra Rectenwald, president and general manager of 3M’s Infection Prevention Division. “The contest will identify innovative approaches to address a wide variety of challenges, and also serve as an educational tool for these facilities in the fight against rising infections rates.”
