But due to its unique nature, not all contractors have the infection control expertise necessary to make your project successful. With more than 5,000 deaths per year due to hospital-acquired infections linked to construction and renovations activities, there is no room for error on infection control. It is vital that the chosen team be as familiar with your facility as you are, have expert knowledge of your critical building systems, and how they will be impacted by construction.
You have likely conducted an Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) to identify and congruently mitigate potential impacts to your patients and healthcare services, but the implementation of a plan or program still depends on the general contractor.
