Part of the Plan: Infection Prevention for Healthcare Professionals During Construction, Renovation, Repair and Maintenance

Dirt and debris from construction, renovation or maintenance work sites are not just dirty…they can release pathogenic organisms into the healthcare facility. The best way to ensure a safe repair or construction project is through detailed, proactive planning, as well as diligent implementation of controls.

Program Highlights

  • Performing a multidisciplinary Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) prior to planned activity for indoor or outdoor construction

  • Implementing and monitoring mitigation recommendations/containment measures to prevent the spread of pathogens based on the project dust-generating activity, and patient risk group

  • Proper protocols for entering and leaving a work area

  • Environmental cleaning of the work site

  • Education of construction personnel who will work at the facility
