The harmful particles that are potentially hazardous to patient health comes from a range of different areas. These areas are generally catagorised into “Internal and External pollutants”
External pollutants are sources of air pollution that are generated in the air outside of your building. Car Exhaust Fumes, Factory emissions, Dust particles from construction work and other processes are the main cause of these pollutants. Although your HVAC system will help deal with most of these contaminants, these can also penetrate your building through open doors and windows throughout your hospital
Internal pollutants are any pollutant that is introduced into your indoor air environment from people or processes that are present within your building. Contaminants such as respiratory spread viruses, fumes from cleaning products, Kitchen odours and other man made contaminates are included in this
During construction works there is an increase release of the Aspergillus into the atmosphere. Aspergillus can be deadly to high risk, low immune patients. During construction works all hospital windows must be sealed shut and the air must be filtered adequately in the patient rooms to avoid the risk of contamination.
