Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Infection control has changed dramatically over the last decade. With an increased awareness of the impacts construction has on our hospitals, it is necessary to have a solid ICRA program and the right game plan to manage and execute your construction projects. This presentation covers the infection control risks associated with construction of basic and complex departments, including Central Sterile and Surgery Suites. It will also discuss how infection control has evolved and where it is heading, the hospital and contractors combined role in ICRA, and highlight a recently completed multiphase OR project consisting of 22 total rooms with a unique logistical challenge presenting zero access to the heart of six complex ORs.
