Environmental standards for a hospital
The environmental safety pointers
Hospitals are considered as one of the best institutions in the society because they discharge one of the basic services needed by the population. Therefore, the design of hospitals must be checked to ensure that it has observed all the environmentally acceptable codes. This is to help in protecting the population that seeks medical services from the hospital as well as the staffs working in the hospital. This will also protect both the internal and external environment of the hospital.
Crowding is a very sensitive issue in hospital and thus must be given much attention by the hospital administration. Overcrowding in hospitals exposes more threats to all the population in the hospital. These include the danger of quick spreading of infectious diseases wherever the hospital is attending to patients with such diseases. Both the hospital staffs and patients become vulnerable. Also the maintenance of hospital hygiene become quite hard if the hospital is handling patients that far outweigh its capacity. In such cases the cleanliness of the institution is compromised. The risk of outbreak of diseases related to cleanliness becomes eminent. Overcrowding is in most cases considered to be environmental hazards in the institution as it compounds the manageable risks to unmanageable levels. The hospital has to be spacious enough. The hospital must also ensure that it checks the population of the hospital at all costs. The capacity of the hospital has to be maintained at certain tolerable levels to avoid further exposure to health hazards. The hospital has to set up and implement a policy to help in monitoring and controlling the flow of people in the hospital. This policy has to include the standards of maintaining manageable number of patients in the hospital wards to give a humble time and a serine environment to the hospital staffs. The policy could also provide a clause that guides it in setting up of emergency medical centers to help in checking in maintaining the hygienic and safety standards in the hospital.
Fire safety standards in a hospital
Safety measures are very important especially so for an institution vulnerable or weak population like hospitals. This is because such a population is already exposed to environmental hazards like diseases and any further incidences may totally harm the population. To ensure total safety, the hospital should put in place complete fire preparedness measurers to reduce the risk from fire incidences. These are contained in the fire safety policy whose implementation and enforcement is a prerogative of the management of the institution (Fleming, 2009). The hospital staffs must adopt, internalize and ensure that that fire preparedness remains active in the hospital at all times. Some of the preparedness measures that have to be contained in the preparedness plan include:-
The equipping of the hospital with fire detection and fighting equipment like smoke detectors, fire distinguishers and fire alarms.
The training and readying of afire fighting team for the hospital. The team must know to rapidly respond to and mitigate fires. Also, the entire hospital staffs have to be trained and equipped with the skills of using the fire fighting equipment installed in the hospitals.
The other important thing goes in the design of the hospital where the building code has to cater for fire risks. There should be fire exit points that are clearly labeled, clear escape paths side lifts and spiral stair to help in rescuing the patients.
A fire assembly point is also important and must be set up. It will help in tracking the record of people or victims of fire.
