New EH&E White Paper Helps Hospitals Address Process and Documentation Requirements for Infection Control During Construction

A new free white paper entitled “Infection Control in the Healthcare Environment During Construction,” is available to help hospitals efficiently comply with specific Environment of Care standards of the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). This paper describes a system designed by EH&E, currently in use at a leading teaching and research hospital in the United States, which both standardizes the construction review process and provides the necessary documentation.

“Most health care institutions are continuously being upgraded to keep up with advances in technology, and must devise policies and procedures to allow construction projects to go forward while simultaneously maintaining critical patient services. This system has been in place for more than two years, and provides standardized, proven procedures for approaching infection control issues in all construction projects,” said Jack McCarthy, president and co-founder of EH&E.

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