Hygiene is a key necessity at nursing homes. The ventilation system is considered to be one of the sources causing infections apart from water, human beings and instruments. In other words, it is the refuge for infections. The transmission vehicles, i.e. hands, water, solutions and air bring the infections from the host to human beings. Hygiene of the indoor air thus helps in terms of minimizing the risk of infection.
Apart from hygiene, even the usual factors of comfort are important success factors for the reputation of a nursing home. The patient, the visitor and the employees have to feel good in the nursing home and the latter must be able to work in a healthy atmosphere. A modern nursing home is also a hotel, a restaurant and a meeting point. The demands for odor-free indoor air come from all angles.
The CEO of a private nursing home stated that the indoor air should be so good that a visitor or patient simply does not realize that he/she is in a nursing home. The bottom line: the typical odor of a nursing home has to be avoided.
The cost pressure requires the nursing home to deal carefully with the resources. Savings are realized and the nursing home should be perceived from the outside as being ecological. Ionair helps the operator to improve the indoor air quality and hygiene actively, and Ionair helps the operator from the planning stage up to decades of operation to achieve the best possible air quality at the lowest investment and operating costs. This is measured across the total cost of ownership (TCO). The changed building uses lead to necessary adaptations time and again even in the operation. With ionair, this can be done quite easily without intervention in the infrastructure.
