DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The contents of Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality in Hospitals are arranged in six main sections. The first section deals with the major issues related to indoor air quality in hospitals, reviewed from North American, Scandinavian, Italian and Russian perspectives. The second section discusses the ventilation requirements in hospitals, with particular focus on the design and maintenance of the ventilation systems and the provision of clean air to critical areas, such as infectious disease wards, surgical theatres, etc. The third section deals with chemical and biological air pollution in hospitals and collects papers from surveys carried out in various countries. Section 4 treats airborne allergens in hospitals. Health care personnel are having to deal with new problems as a result of exposure to allergens, and these are illustrated by studies performed in North America and England. Section 5 describes the technical aspects of ventilation in hospitals and strategies for air quality management, collecting technical and organizational proposals for solving some of the problems associated with ventilation in hospitals. The main conclusions and recommendations of the workshop are presented in section 6, together with some future actions that are envisaged.

Editor: World Health Organization

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The WHO Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Health Care provide health-care workers (HCWs), hospital administrators and health authorities with a thorough review of evidence on hand hygiene in health care and specific recommendations to improve practices and reduce transmission of pathogenic microorganisms to patients and HCWs. The present Guidelines are intended to be implemented in any situation in which health care is delivered either to a patient or to a specific group in a population. Therefore, this concept applies to all settings where health care is permanently or occasionally performed, such as home care by birth attendants. Definitions of health-care settings are proposed in Appendix 1. These Guidelines and the associated WHO Multimodal Hand Hygiene Improvement Strategy and an Implementation Toolkit (http://www.who.int/gpsc/en/) are designed to offer health-care facilities in Member States a conceptual framework and practical tools for the application of recommendations in practice at the bedside. While ensuring consistency with the Guidelines recommendations, individual adaptation according to local regulations, settings, needs, and resources is desirable. This extensive review includes in one document sufficient technical information to support training materials and help plan implementation strategies. The document comprises six parts.
