ICRA for Healthcare Construction
Health care-associated infections, or HAIs, are infections that people acquire while they are visiting a hospital or receiving treatment for another condition in a health care setting. HAIs can be acquired anywhere health care is delivered, including birthing and neonatal facilities, inpatient acute care hospitals, outpatient settings such as ambulatory surgical centers, cancer centers, end-stage renal disease facilities, and long-term care facilities such as nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. HAIs may be caused by any infectious agent, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses, as well as other less common types of pathogens by disturbing the surrounding areas.
Infection Control Risk Assessment
•Construction (Adding new space)
•Renovation (Updating rooms or facility space)
•Update existing facilities equipment (nurse call stations, fire control systems, TV systems)
•Remediation tasks (Removal of mold or asbestos)
•Repair or replacement of existing equipment (Removing ceiling tiles or cutting dry wall to access equipment)
•Maintenance (Replacing lighting in ceiling tiles or painting walls)
•Demolition (Removing ceiling tiles. Ripping down walls. Removing existing infra-structure)
How does this Happen?
At Local 95 we understand that Conducting an Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) in a healthcare organization is essential for minimizing the risks of acquiring and transmitting infections and protecting the lives of everyone at risk.
The Local 95 program teaches the ICRA standards and protocols and the reasoning for them along with the construction of infection control containments and barriers. The I.U.O.E. Local 95 Training Fund is playing an important part in training and education for our hospitals in response to a critical industry need.
