Description

Hospitals are increasingly in need of water risk management planning to reduce and eliminate the possibility of waterborne illness such as Legionella. ASHRAE published the new standard ASHRAE 188-2015 to establish minimum requirements for building water systems. This session offers a review of the ASHE water management monograph to assist members in complying with the standard and demonstrate why a water management plan ensures patient and facility safety.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a water management program to protect patients, visitors, and staff from waterborne pathogens.
  • Meet the water system requirements of CMS Condition of Participation 482.42 Infection Control, Joint Commission Environment of Care, and the ASHRAE Standard 188.
  • Reduce waterborne hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).
