Protect your patients from pathogens in the air and in HVAC systems.

Common Air Quality Problems In Healthcare Facilities

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are where people go to when their immune systems are at their weakest. Their bodies may be fighting a flu virus or cancer or have open wounds making them extremely vulnerable. This is no time for pathogens to be wafting about in the air and HVAC systems. One virus or bacterium landing on an open wound can cause an infection that could be life threatening or cause an otherwise successful operation to go very badly for the patient. Hospitals and healthcare are tightly regulated by multiple accreditation organizations. Regulators write, update, add guidelines and restrictions on hospital activities and tie successful compliance to regulated activities to reimbursement. For instance, the U.S. government tracks the number of hospital-associated infections, and whether patients must be readmitted with such infections. When a hospital-associated infection occurs, the hospital is fined. These add up to millions of dollars per year. Further, insurance companies have stopped reimbursing hospitals for these readmissions.
