In any healthcare facility, especially hospitals, clean and efficient cooling is an essential element to infection control and overall quality health care. The well-being of patients, staff, and the temperature of life saving equipment can be compromised if the air conditioning system fails to deliver cool and clean air. In order to deliver high quality conditioned air, in-house HVAC systems must be maintained and eventually replaced over-time. Many New York hospitals wisely choose to rent portable air conditioners during system maintenance or during unplanned outages.
The biggest concern hospital facility directors have is making sure the equipment being used is clean and efficient. This is because there are infection control procedures that need to be followed in order to decrease the risk of air born illness and infection. Fortunately, American Spot Cooling is experienced in providing hospital administrators with rental air conditioners of all sizes and capacities to keep Hartford hospitals functioning at peak efficiency.
Infection control procedures have three main components that rental air conditioners must meet for use within a hospital setting. Once, all rental equipment must be sanitized before use; if equipment isn't sanitized, infection can spread through unclean air. Two, hepa-filtration must be used; by using hepa-filtration air particles that may be harmful to patients and staff are trapped instead of being circulated. Three, rental equipment must be well maintained and quality checked before delivery.
