Description

Pressure dependent spaces are necessary to support infection control. They reduce the risk of infection by directing the flow of air from clean to less clean. National and state standards specify ventilation requirements of pressure dependent spaces. Texas Children's Hospital created a pressure dependent spaces program that includes adoption of a national standard, a comprehensive master list of pressure dependent spaces, a plan to monitor these spaces, policies to manage repurposing of these spaces, and training of staff.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the requirements of several types of pressure dependent spaces based on a nationally recognized standard
  • Create an inventory of pressure dependent spaces based on the present utilization of space
  • Create a plan to monitor pressure dependent spaces with different types of monitoring devices and systems
  • Train staff about monitoring pressure dependent spaces and the requirements as specified in the standards

Speaker(s):

  • Dennis Ford, SASHE, CHFM, CHC, CHSP, CHEP, Director, Central Division Facilities Operations, Atrium Health
