Infection Prevention and Control in Health Care Facility Design
For this research study, we specifically examined three features and whether HCFs with these features have seen a decrease in health care-associated infection (HAI) rates. The features examined include: the requirement for single patient rooms, dedicated provisions for human waste disposal; and the requirement for deeper and better designed hand hygiene sinks.
This report discusses existing literature on the subject, provides an overview of the existing patient safety surveillance programs in Canada, and explores how the requirements of the standard can contribute to reducing infection rates in health care facilities.
