How Modular Healthcare Facilities Aided Pandemic Response
FACILITIES.NET

Modular construction allows hospitals and healthcare entities to quickly increase the number of patients they can care for during construction projects or during pandemic situations. Hospitals and healthcare facilities are not equipped to handle a large influx of patients in a very short timeframe. Hospitals maintain enough bed space for a typical patient load and do not have a large amount of spare patient beds — the maintenance cost for having a large amount of unused patient bed space just doesn’t make sense. A better solution is to provide a means to rapidly scale up the number of available patient beds utilizing prefabricated units or being able to quickly construct new facilities. In a situation like a pandemic, modular construction’s speed is its biggest advantage.

Low-cost moist heat treatment of N95 masks eliminates novel coronavirus: Study
THE ECONOMIC TIMES

Toronto: Scientists have found that moist heat treatment of N95 masks eliminates the novel coronavirus which causes COVID-19, an advance which could allow reuse of these scarce resources in hospitals and long-term care facilities.

The Hidden Threat of Corrosion in Water-Based Fire Sprinkler Systems
HEALTH FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

As the eyes and ears of the hospital, front-line employees are best qualified to suggest changes that will improve day-to-day processes in their own facilities. But how do they take those ideas from concept to realization?

One answer: Turn them over to the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) advocacy team. Some of the most important changes and updates to existing codes and standards in hospitals have come from the ASHE members who see the real-world impact of such regulations on a daily basis, according to Jonathan Flannery, MHSA, FASHE, FACHE, ASHE’s senior associate director of advocacy.

The bed, developed by Ably Medical was designed to assist caregivers as well as patients, since its technology is intended to help prevent pressure ulcers and falls, and help reduce injuries to nursing staff by making it easier to safely maneuver patients in their beds.

CBC NEWS

The lawyer for a group opposing the location of a new mega hospital in Windsor said the fight is not yet over, after a divisional court dismissed its latest appeal.
