Class Detail

ICRA - BEST PRACTICES IN HEALTHCARE CONSTRUCTION

Course Description

A major issue in hospitals today is secondary infections that are contracted during hospital stays. This results in approximately 99,000 deaths per year. A concern is the increase in infections because of cross contamination from hospital remodels. Removing ceilings, walls, flooring, etc. releases germs, mold, or anything else that is trapped behind ceilings and walls, and under floors. If not handled properly these infectious agents are transferred through HVAC systems, drafts, tracking on the feet, etc. to other parts of the hospital where patients with compromised immune systems are very susceptible to secondary infections. As a result, hospitals are now looking for contractors and workers who have been trained to handle these situations during construction.
