As an infection control professional with 12 years experience, I am insulted with the implication that I am less capable or knowledgeable simply because I don't have their piece of paper!! I am not in an environment that would support the cost or the time of obtaining the certificate every 2 years - but that does NOT mean that I don't know my job or take any steps possible to ensure that I have the skills necessary to protect my staff and patients.

Interesting article. I'm for anything that'll improve infection control without violating civil liberties.
