A site survey of a hospital in Eastern Canada was jointly performed by LuminUltra and Clean Air & Water Inc. The hospital takes in treated city water and processes it through additional treatment steps for further purification prior to delivering it to four separate five-story towers. This additional treatment is provided to improve quality and manage the higher levels of microbiological risk associated with immuno-compromised patients.
The goal of the site audit was to use LuminUltra’s Quench-Gone Aqueous (QGA) test kit as a means to assess levels of microbiological accumulation in each sector of the hospital water distribution system and identify locations of higher risk. Secondary to this was the development of a HACCP-style water safety management program for routine use.
