Medical Grade Air Purification for Nursing Homes
Many nursing home residents are susceptible to the effects of air pollutants. The short communication linked here from Science of the Total Environment outlines a plan for assessing and addressing IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) in nursing homes. A proactive approach may promote health, well-being, and quality of life.
Remedial interventions to improve IAQ in nursing homes include source control, improving ventilation and deploying air cleaners where appropriate (United States Environmental Protection Agency, n.d.).
We provide medical grade air purification for nursing homes with our portable air cleaners. The AeroCure 200 is built for spaces over 400 square feet. The GermZone 100 is for smaller spaces under 400 square feet.
Why Invest in Air Purification for Long-Term Care Facilities?
It appears COVID-19 is here for the foreseeable future. This brief from McKnights Long-Term Care News outlines the benefits of Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms that are designed to prevent the spread of contagious diseases.
Using portable air purification systems and circulation can increase the safety of residents and staff in a long-term facility.
