Hospitals and other healthcare facilities need to take special care to keep the indoor air clean from contaminants, free from humidity and safe for breathing.
The people visiting comprise of patients, elderly people, pregnant women and others who have a poor immune system and thus have low resistance to infections. Further, they may catch additional infections that are different from what they are being treated for. These are referred to as “Hospital Acquired Infections.”
Moreover there are many facilities in hospitals like the burnt units, pathological labs, operation theatres, laboratories, ICUs, and similar other places, where maintaining the right RH levels are critical. In operation theatres, the surgeon require cooler, drier room conditions due to the multiple clothing they need to wear, while performing surgeries.
In the laboratories too, there is expensive equipment that required proper humidity free air to perform desirably. Moisture in the air can lead to spoilage of these equipment, resulting in frequent breakdowns, expenditure on purchasing new equipment or maintenance of old equipment.
There have been many cases in the past, where the hospitals had to be shut down due to the growth of mold and fungus that are a result of high humidity. These hospitals had to incur millions of dollars on remediation and also had to be closed down their operations completely during the remediation period.
