    Re: Infection Control New Construction in Hospitals

    Posted by Judy on 2/11/05

    Have you looked at the CSA Standards? Their publication is
    CAN/CSA Z317.13-03
    "Infection Control during Construction or Renovation of
    Health Care Facilities". They also provide courses/
    certification re: construction and infection control.
    Additionally, this document "Health Canada Construction -
    Related Nosocmial Infections In Patients in Health Care
    Facilities, July 2001" may be useful. It takes a lot of time
    and diligence to get through the cosntruction carefully. I
    am up to my neck in a New Canacer Centre, and Hospital
    Renovations and a construction of an entire new wing.
    Good luck,
