Background and Identification
Maintaining clean air in a healthcare facility is especially important when there are patients who may be immunocompromised, have allergies, respiratory illness or are just more vulnerable in general due to health conditions. Generally HEPA air filtration systems are used to filter the air. HEPA stands for High-efficiency particulate air and it is designed to filter 99.97% of the particulates out of the air. It will work to remove airborne bacteria and virus thus eliminating infection. Medical use HEPA filtration systems also incorporate ultra-violet light units or panels with anti-microbial coating which will add a level of protection against viruses and bacteria.
In a healthcare setting you’re likely to find a HEPA filtration system in the following places:
- Operating Rooms
- Treatment Rooms
- Areas where procedures are performed
- Equipment Rooms
- Infectious Disease areas and Isolation Rooms
