Construction and Renovation of Healthcare Facilities
Hospitals, like any other infrastructures, need regular maintenance. Old units may be torn down and expansion may be carried out to cater for new service demands. Repair works can range from minor such as changing the lights and broken fixtures to major ones such as demolishment and renovation. Construction activities that take place out of the hospital boundaries can also affect infection rate inside hospitals by affecting the air quality or creating environmental hygiene issues. Project management must take into account of infection control considerations and the impact on patient services.
