Infection Control in Hospitals

September 11, 2019

The aim of a hospital planner is to achieve a good hospital architectural design for better infection control and an administrator to practice good infection control policies and monitor them to achieve better patient car, informs Dr Rashi Agarwal, Director, PRAXIS

Not only is technology and design important for a hospital to run effectively but processes like infection control which is ignored in the planning stages are equally important. Ignorance towards these soft departments leads to high morbidity and mortality rates in the hospital, adversely affecting patient care, revenues, reputation, etc. Hospital planners, owners, senior administrators, and key decision-makers pay attention to mainly hospital design and planning but forget that functional departmental planning is as important as physical structural planning and each needs to be interlinked for a successful hospital.
