Identification: 1022

Credits: None available.

On the heels of legionella outbreak, the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital successfully implemented an ASHRAE 188-compliant Water Safety Monitoring Plan. The hospital has also implemented an Air Safety Monitoring Plan. What has been the key to its success? Inter-disciplinary collaboration. Leveraging the knowledge of experts in infection prevention, clinical processes of care, construction, maintenance, and safety, UAB Medicine’s Air and Water Safety Monitoring Team changed the health system’s culture around infection prevention and patient safety. Through this session, participants will gain insights into how to work across departments to develop and implement Air and Water Safety Monitoring Plans at their own facilities.

Learning Objectives:

  • List the required elements of a successful air and water safety monitoring plan.
  • Create a cross-disciplinary air and water safety monitoring committee.
  • Implement a successful ASHRAE 188-compliant water safety monitoring plan and an air safety monitoring plan.

Identification: 1120

Credits: None available.

Where does one start in the pursuit of the coveted Energy Star rating? Energy Star is a nationally recognized gold standard for energy efficiency. Why this is not every facility managers primary goal requires a deeper understanding of the true cost of such a milestone accomplishment. In this presentation the audience will learn and understand what the true cost is in not seeking Energy Star for their facility. This presentation will share demonstrated applications and outcomes from multiple facilities that have successfully implemented this program. Attendees will walk away with a very clear understanding of the steps they need to take and the communications they need to have to empower their teams and facility in reaching the coveted Energy Star rating for their building.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the proper team and steps for a successful program.
  • Obtain the correct measurements to understand, control, and improve a program.
  • Use the tactics others have used to achieve success with very little investment.

Credits: None available.

Technology is advancing faster than our codes. As the cost of distributed energy generation systems, energy storage systems and artificial intelligence continues to fall, new ways of powering electrical systems are starting to disrupt our traditional ways of thinking about energy supplies for critical buildings. These changes have the potential to address some of the resilience and sustainability concerns many health care organizations are trying to address. This session will show examples of two health care microgrid systems, and give a brief overview of the ways the codes are starting to adapt.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define a health care microgrid based on the NFPA 99 new definition.
  • Identify the technologies appropriate for microgrid application.
  • Describe how health care facilities use microgrids to supply electricity to their distribution system.
  • Understand the current state of NFPA codes as they evolve to meet the needs of the future.
