PATIENT CARE 

ROOMS

A healthcare facility’s HVAC system is its first line of defense against airborne pathogens.

 

The ability to precisely control the direction of airflow, air pressure, air changes per hour, and humidity can limit the spread of internally generated airborne pathogens throughout the facility, improve patient safety, increase care delivery effectiveness, and enhance the overall quality of care. These are achievable when the environment is designed to be therapeutic for patients, efficient for staff and restorative for all involved.
