Infection Prevention Control (IPC)
Following the SARS-COV-2 Pandemic in 2020 the importance of good ventilation has become more prevelent among healthcare staff, patients, and the general public. In the past, requirements for HEPA filtration, air flow rates, positive and negative pressure environments, etc. were mainly associated with Clean Rooms, Isolation Wards, and Reseach or Testing Facilities. Recents studies have shown the majority of HCAI’s are transmitted via airborne particles, yet IPC measures to date still largely focus budgets on maintaining fomite cleaning practices.
With over 20 years experience solely focused on installing and maintaining HVAC services, Shiva are one of the few companies in Ireland qualified and competent to advise on improving IPC measure by simply improving or supplementing ventilation systems in your facility. From fixed systems to unique ‘Plug & Play’ solutions there are very few probelms they cannot solve.
Shiva can also provide solutions on a lease-to-buy or long term rental basis, meaning no upfront costs are involved and existing CAPEX budgets are unaffected.
Shiva aim to provide a IPC solution for common airborne Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAI/HCAI)’s
including but not limited to:
Norovirus (Winter vomiting bug)
Rhinoviruses (Common cold)
Pertussis (Whooping cough)
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
