Hospital acquired infection is a growing issue of concern to hospitals and clinics and the waterborne route tends to be overlooked. Exposure mainly occurs while showering or hand washing with contaminated tap water. Also, water-using equipment such as sterilizers and decontamination washers may contribute to the infection risk. Immunocompromised patients, through drug therapy or medical condition, are particularly at risk. Legionella is the most known bacteria, but there are many others including pseudomonas & fungi. Generally, membrane filtration is considered to be the safest, most affordable and sustainable option to minimize the risk of exposure in high-risk hospital areas. At Fealter, we offer a full range of filtration products for situations where extensive protection is necessary.
