Contaminants have proven to be a major threat to the health and safety of both patients and professionals in the healthcare system. Emergency Triage Units have developed standards to control harmful contaminants, yet millions of people contract healthcare associated infections every year. The result of these infections generates multi-billion dollar costs for hospitals each year. The purpose of this project is to research and analyze current healthcare standards, common sources of contamination, and methods of cleaning and disease prevention in order to find any shortcomings or faults that increase the risk of infection. The results from this research could prove to be vital in reducing the risk of nosocomial infections.
