Just a quick post here pointing people to an article of possible interest: Healthcare-associated Infections Keep Industry On High Alert. In the article Sara Marberry discusses some issues relating to microbes and the built environment in hospital design. Among the topics covered are hydrogen peroxide vapor systems, UV irradiation devices, and copper as possible antimicrobials. Also discusses are facility guidelines and factors such as filters, coiling coils, room sizes and more. Definitely worth a look. I hope they start to consider more the microbial ecology and not just what to do about possible pathogens.
