Increase Client Satisfaction with ICRA Containment Walls

As any business grows and expands, substantial improvements to the workspace are often necessitated in order to meet customer demands, increase employee productivity, and the overall efficiency of the company. In fact, a period of remodeling or renovation, in some ways, is a good problem to have because it’s an indication of a company’s success. Nevertheless, the interruption can also be a trying time for employees. Not only as it relates to their ability to remain productive while the workspace is under construction, but for their health and safety.

To avoid all health and safety related issues, infection control should be a primary concern for companies undergoing restoration, remodeling or renovation. Project engineers, architects, and construction managers should include and agree on an Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) strategy in the developmental and planning stages of the project.

Infection control specialists and contractors in the field look to Infection-Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) guidelines and strategies to prevent environment-associated infections in every healthcare facility. Sound ICRA infection control measures should not only be part of routine infection-control strategies but engineering practices, as well. Continue Reading

STARC Systems Barrier protects patients during renovation-Health Facilities Management Magazine Feature

Central Maine Medical Center (CMMC), Lewiston, recently undertook a major renovation in and around the facility’s emergency department (ED).

The medical center was challenged to perform the work without any interruption in emergency services, while also protecting patients and staff from potentially hazardous airborne particles.

Any construction, renovation and repair activities in hospitals and health care facilities can create or disturb particles, and cause them to become aerosolized. These particles include Aspergillus spp., a fungus commonly found in indoor environments that attaches to and feeds on dirt and dust particles and cellulose-based building materials. Patients with suppressed immune systems are especially susceptible to developing aspergillosis, a potentially life-threatening infection. Continue Reading
