Date:1/22/2008

NEEDHAM, Mass., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospitals and healthcare institutions are challenged to devise policies and procedures that allow construction projects to take place while maintaining Environment of Care (EC) standards. A free white paper that addresses these challenges is available for download at: http://www.eheinc.com/infectioncontrol.htm.

The white paper, titled "Infection Control in the Healthcare Environment During Construction," details the process required to establish hospital compliance with The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) while maintaining a high level of patient care services and critical institution functions.

The white paper will discuss the steps involved in ensuring infection control during construction, including how to:

-- Create a construction oversight panel

-- Select which departments and personnel should be on the panel

-- Incorporate Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) elements into

construction documents

-- Establish clear-cut project phases.

Authored by Dennis Tremblay, CFPS, a Senior Scientist at EH&E (http://www.eheinc.com), a Needham, Mass.-based environmental, health, safety, and engineering consulting firm, the white paper is based on the experiences of EH&E personnel while working with leading healthcare institutions nationwide.

This white paper reviews the applicable Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) standards and American Institute of Architects (AIA) guidelines, and describes a field-tested, successful solution for maintaining Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) documentation. The paper will be interesting and informative to all those responsible for maintaining environmental health and safety compliance in healthcare facilities.
