Hospitals Are Getting Penalized Due To The Growing Number Of Infections

Are these Particulants and Pathogens getting through your air ventilation system?

Failing to make patient safety a top priority of can have detrimental effects.

Hospital-acquired infections (nosocomial infections) are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, the CDC reports 75,000 in 2014.

Nosocomial infections are transmitted in hospitals through three main environmental routes — air, surface contact and water.

As hospitals continue to get penalized, many are focusing on measures to reduce their nosocomial infections, Hospital Acquired Infections, and increase patient comfort with improved Indoor Air Quality.

Some airborne infections are spread when dust and pathogens are released from contaminated ductwork.

The indoor environment impacts productivity, morale, health and welfare, which ultimately affects the retention of staff.

In a study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory they found that improved IAQ improves worker productivity by 0.5% to 5% (A national workforce impact potential of $20-$200 billion).

The two critical components to eliminating infections are:

The Comfort First Filtered Diffuser uses a MERV 14 filter that captures particles 3/10 of a micron in size at an efficiency level of 60% to 66%, depending on the air velocity. No other filtered supply diffuser comes close to this efficiency level. Filters last 4 to 6 months and are easily replaced in less than a minute. The superior air distribution of the Four Way Diffuser will also eliminate those pesky complaints of cold air blowing onto workers below - which will boost employee happiness and productivity.
