Using Ventilation to Reduce the Covid-19 Infections within Hospitals

By Sarah Bailey, Senior Consultant

Each year Australia records about 165,000 incidents of healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) which are acquired upon visiting a hospital. The cost of these HAIs in Australia was predicted to be approximately $1 billion per year in 2009. The recent pandemic of COVID-19 has only aggravated the situation and added to the burden of HAI.

In this whitepaper we take a closer look at:

  • COVID-19 and the increased burden of healthcare acquired infections
  • Poor ventilation linked to COVID-19 outbreaks
  • Managing the risk of COVID-19 in hospital buildings
  • Ventilation requirements in hospitals to control COVID-19 infection
  • Maintenance priority rankings
