According to the EPA, potable water is the most important source of Legionella bacteria, and in hospitals, where patients are already vulnerable to infections, the CDC has shown the risk of death from legionella rises to 25%. Highly publicized outbreaks have occurred in healthcare facilities in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia, among other locations across North America and the rest of the world, demonstrating the impact this deadly but preventable bacteria can have on public health.
Instead of waiting for an outbreak, healthcare facilities can protect patients and reduce costs by taking a proactive approach that mitigates the risk of nosocomial infection before it occurs. Copper silver ionization in hospitals helps you comply with ASHRAE 188 Legionella Prevention Standards when secondary potable water treatment is recommended to prevent the growth and spread of bacteria through facility’s water distribution network.
