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.
