Hospitals, by their very nature, are places where germs are found.
Whilst cleaning regimes within all medical establishments are strict and extremely thorough, the nature of these facilities means that they continuously house large numbers of people with illnesses (including infections and viruses). Therefore, there is always a risk that disease is present within the recirculating air.
Despite this inevitable fact, there are few places where the effective control of airborne contamination is more important – after all the hospital is the place where people come to get well, and outbreaks of Hospital Associated Infections never make for good press.
Always striking a balance - Between rigid cleaning regimes…
Hospitals face many challenges. The air is not only being contaminated continuously with potentially infectious pathogens (COVID-19 being a distinct possibility), but it’s also being polluted by the volatile organic compounds generated by the strong cleaning chemicals needed to kill bacteria across the sites.
… and vulnerable patients
In any environment, this level of contamination would be a concern, but hospitals also have to think about the particularly vulnerable people exposed to the recirculating air; people with weakened immune systems, with Cystic Fibrosis or other breathing-related illnesses for example. And staff too must be protected and guaranteed a pure and safe working environment if they are to carry out their front-line duties at a time when they are needed most.
So what can be done to solve the dilemma faced by our hospitals?
At KSG Health we have a proven, effective solution - Genano technology.
In short, the removal of particles down to nanometre size from indoor air and the elimination of microbes such as viruses, bacteria and moulds.
Genano air purification devices are already being used in hospital facilities around the world, replacing the traditional filters which are limited when it comes to the range of contamination which they can remove.
For applications where the harbouring of pathogens, such as the Coronavirus, could have perilous consequences, the confidence and peace of mind offered by Genaro technology come into its own.
