dc.descriptionThis document has been developed to support consideration of infection prevention and control requirements as central in designing new builds, refurbishing old builds, adding extensions, upgrading existing facilities and undertaking any building work that will impact on how care is provided to patients both in acute hospitals and residential settings in the community. It has been adapted from the ‘Infection Prevention and Control Building Guidelines for Acute Hospital, SARI 2009’ [1]. For the purpose of this document, the term ‘hospital’ will include acute hospitals and all healthcare settings where clinical care is provided. For ease of use, the recommendations will be divided into four sections: Part 1 – Governance Part 2 – Acute hospital settings Part 3 – Community settings Part 4 – Other settings This guidance has been reviewed to ensure that experience and learning from the COVID-19 pandemic in relation to infrastructural issues has been considered and where appropriate has informed updates to this guidance. By way of implementing this guidance, it is anticipated that it will be shared by Estates with their planning, design and building teams and will be supported by clinical teams including infection prevention and control teams. It will assist the design, re-design or refurbishment of hospitals to reduce and prevent the occurrence of HCAIs and improve patient safety.en_US
