Legionella Bacteria Basics
What is Legionella bacteria?
A deadly form of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ Disease is becoming a growing danger throughout the country. The disease is contracted from Legionella bacteria that can be found in the water systems of public facilities like hospitals, nursing homes, and hotels. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have stated that the number of reported cases in the US has more than quadrupled since 2000.
How can legionella outbreaks be prevented?
Organizations such as the CMS and ASHRAE have created guidelines and standards for reducing the risk of Legionella infection. The CMS has facility requirements for minimizing Legionella risk in facility water systems while ASHRAE Standard 188 also establishes minimum Legionellosis risk management guidelines. New Joint Commission Standards take effect 1/1/2022, are you ready?
