iPads, droids, and bugs: Infection prevention for mobile handheld devices at the point of care.

Am J Infect Control. 2013 Jun 28;

Authors: Manning ML, Davis J, Sparnon E, Ballard RM

Abstract
Health care providers are increasingly using wireless media tablets, such as the Apple iPad, especially in the hospital setting. In the absence of specific tablet disinfection guidelines the authors applied what is known about the contamination of other nonmedical mobile communication devices to create a "common sense" bundle to guide wireless media tablet infection prevention practices.
