Hospital Ventilation- How Important is it?

In healthcare facilities, ventilation goes way beyond whether you’re just hot or cold. A ventilation system plays a very important role in hospitals, not only by maintaining comfortable climate conditions of temperature and humidity control, but also by maintaining a clean, germ-free environment to contribute to the well-being of patients and to prevent the spread of disease. These determining factors mean that the design of air conditioning systems for the hospital sector must take into account a series of characteristics that, although important in other sectors, must be given special attention in this sector.

Proper ventilation and indoor air quality (IAQ) must be maintained to ensure proper infection control and patient safety. The goal of the HVAC design is to efficiently and effectively provide a safe and comforting environment. Medical facilities can demand varying temperature levels depending on the environment.

Healthcare facilities that may not be properly ventilated, designed or controlled can lead to the spread of airborne pathogens throughout the facility. Hospital patients who have compromised immune systems and are more susceptible to infection will likely be infected and can spread pathogens to the rest of the hospital.
