The pre-construction risk assessment (PCRA) is one of the most important and most underutilized tools available to health care facilities contemplating a construction project. Often the PCRA is completed just prior to the contractor performing the work and describes only the infection control requirements. However, incomplete or ineffective implementation of the PCRA can increase construction costs and put patients, staff, and visitors at risk. The goal of this session is to help the audience understand the value of the PCRA and its appropriate implementation. This session will enable attendees to:
Define the major delivery stages of the health care planning, design, and construction process and the pre-construction risk assessment.
Explore how the PDC risk assessment functions in the regulatory environment.
Examine the pre-construction risk assessment and the expected outcomes.
Select and implement the appropriate mitigation measures.
