A major issue in hospitals today is secondary infections that are contracted during hospital stays. This results in many deaths per year. A concern is the increase in infections because of cross contamination from hospital additions and renovations. 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 patient’s 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. This course addresses these issues.
