White Paper: Preventing Hospital Acquired Infections from Tap Water

Water distribution systems in many healthcare facilities are colonized by micro-organisms, including bacteria, protozoans and fungi. Cleaning solutions, disinfectants and antiseptics are vulnerable to contamination from these micro-organisms. Pathogens that do not pose a significant threat to the general population, can cause hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) among patients with compromised immune systems, or other conditions that leave them more vulnerable to infection.

Treating hospital tap water is an often overlooked, but critical element that must be considered while working to control sources of HAIs.

The white paper Preventing Hospital Acquired Infections from Tap Water summarizes relevant literature on the impact of pathogens in hospital water supplies.
