CARLISLE, PA – Tuckey Restoration, Inc., a member company of DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, today announced its completion of The Linders Health Institute’s specialized training for infection control during disaster recovery in healthcare facilities.

Since hospitals affected by natural disasters risk the spread of airborne pathogens and infectious diseases, the requirement of construction compliance standards has become an increasing concern, and it is crucial for first responders, such as Tuckey Restoration, to be prepared for these challenges.

Marlene Linders, founder of The Institute, held the two-day boot camp on September 12 and 13 at fellow DKI member company, Insurance Restoration Specialists DKI’s facilities in Monroe Township, N.J. The course covered infection control, emerging infectious diseases, air and waterborne pathogens, MRSA and exposure risks during restoration for healthcare facilities.

The Institute’s training is the only infectious diseases course that teaches best practices from the hospital’s perspective and at the clinical level, in regards to the patient population. It is also the only accredited program, authorized by both the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the US Green Building Council (USGBC/GBCI) for continuing education.

Matthew Tuckey and Dale Mundis of Tuckey Restoration each received a certificate of completion to show hospitals their proof of training, as well as Critical Environment Reconstruction Contractors (CERC) accreditation.
