Series: Hygiene in hospitals for planners, architects, project managers, operators, (supply and building) engineers, public agency staff and decision-makers


Whenever facing the task of reducing hospital-acquired infections, constructional and technical requirements must be considered as well.

  • constructional structure of hospitals
  • operational processes in connection with constructional requirements in special areas
