A Growing Threat: In a 2015 report, the CDC confirmed an alarming increase in legionella-related disease outbreaks in the U.S., more than half originating in hospitals or healthcare facilities. With no vaccine, and a fatality rate of 28%, this threat must be stopped at the source: the facility water system. According to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, OSHA, WHO, and the EPA, it is the responsibility of the facility owner or manager to institute and maintain a rigorous water management plan.
We can help with that.
Water System Analysis and Drawings. From the Experts.
Our detailed water system survey, drawings and program development services are the foundation for a water management plan that will help identify and mitigate legionella and other threats to hospitals and healthcare facilities. Strict guidelines, including the Department of Health & Human Services recent Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Memorandum, ASHRAE Standard 188 (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) and VHA Directive 1061 have established minimum Legionellosis risk management requirements for building water systems. “Facilities must develop and adhere to policies and procedures that inhibit microbial growth in building water systems that reduce the risk of growth and spread of legionella and other opportunistic pathogens in water.” HydroCorp can help. Our program is delivered in two phases.
