Hospitals and healthcare facilities are challenged to devise policies and procedures that allow construction projects to take place while maintaining Environment of Care (EC) standards. A new white paper addresses these challenges.

Titled Infection Control in the Healthcare Environment During Construction, the white paper details the process required to establish hospital compliance with The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) while maintaining a high level of patient-care services and critical institution functions.

The white paper discusses the steps involved in ensuring infection control during construction, including how to:
  • Create a construction oversight panel.
  • Select which departments and personnel should be on the panel.
  • Incorporate Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) elements into construction documents.
  • Establish clear-cut project phases.
