Looks promising, I operate a home based training service specializing in no-stress lie support training BLS< ACLS< PALS etc as well as nursing CE, we need to focus more on healthcare workers exposure to Infectious diseases that take a while to be identified, like TB, meningitis, hepatitis and AIDS. How often have we been aring for patients for 2 or 3 weeks while the AFB cuktures are cooking at antiquated "state labs" only to have the Infection control nurses come running breathlessly on the unit putting up isolation precautions on the patient and wanting to write up folks for not using the proper precautions.
