HAI’s (Hospital Acquired Infections) are one of the leading causes of patient infections and mortality. It is also referred to as Nosocomial Infections. Hospitals are constantly under renovation, new construction, or major changes to infrastructure as technologies change and improve. Infection Prevention Specialist utilizes a process referred to as Infection Control Risk Assessments (ICRA) or Pre-construction Risk Assessments (PCRA) to try and minimize the impact these processes may have to the patient and occupant populations. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same agenda, problems occur, patients become ill or succumb.
