Impact of Poor Air Quality at healthcare
The complex hospital environment requires special attention to ensure a healthy indoor air quality (IAQ) to protect patients and healthcare workers against hospital-acquired infections and occupational diseases. Poor hospital IAQ may cause outbreaks of building-related illness and can harm low immunity patients and other staff members.
Pollutants that harm you at healthcare
Tiny size particles can stay suspended in the air much longer than larger particles and can be absorbed into the bloodstream when inhaled.
Unseen germs and viruses
Hospitals have many unssen germs and viruses floating around which are harmful not only for patients but all the people as they can get affected by this.
There has been extensive evidence proving that prolonged exposure to concentrated levels of CO2 is harmful for patients and other medical staff.
Who are at Risk?
Poor air quality can irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, cause shortness of breath, aggravate asthma and other respiratory conditions, and affect the heart and cardiovascular system. Breathing polluted air for long periods of time can cause more serious problems.
The Impact of Air Quality
The dangers posed by air pollution are a key concern for people and communities around the world. One area in particular that has seen increased attention in recent years is the impact of poor air quality around healthcare.
Doctors and Staff Illness
Hospitals with poor or ineffective ventilation systems are at a higher risk of incubating illnesses caused by airborne contaminants, and these illnesses will have a debilitating effect on the productivity of hospital staff who will either have to work at reduced capacity, or miss work entirely due to respiratory illnesses.
Rise in the amount of patients
Moreover, the level of pollutants may also affect patients at hospitals with poor air quality. The irony is that doctors can’t even guarantee that their patients are safe in a hospital, which is the one place in the world that patients should feel that their health is being made better, not worse. That’s the dilemma facing many hospitals that are wrestling with the issue of airborne contaminants.
Patients prone to other diseases
In hospital there is high chance a patient can affect with other diseases too. In past years there are many cases where a patient is suffering from some diseases is also affected by airborne disease as the quality of air in the hospital is very poor.
