Hospital HSDS sheet similar to MSDS sheets for air quality

Recommended Posts

I believe a hospital document is needed to share disinfectant systems for air conditioners, filter systems for diseases and number of change outs of air per hour for the hospitals and each room. This document should be available on line and I call it HSDS (Hospital Safety Data Sheets) like MSDS (Material Safety Data sheets)

Thanks for the guidelines and the CDC sent it to me earlier and I believe the next step needs to be done and they have not replied. Please see my latest reply to the CDC. 

>>>Thanks and now it is relatively simple for all hospitals to publish an HSDS for their property. Who or what organization can first provide a legal requirement for HSDS or research what a HSDS sheet will be composed of?  

Regards

XXXXXXXXX

Thank you for contacting CDC-INFO. 

We hope you find the following information about hospital ventilation helpful.

The risk of spreading the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) through ventilation systems has not been studied, but is likely low. Early reports suggest person-to-person transmission most commonly happens during close exposure to a person infected with COVID-19, primarily via respiratory droplets produced when the infected person coughs or sneezes. Droplets can land in the mouths, noses, or eyes of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs of those within close proximity. The contribution of small respirable particles, sometimes called aerosols  or droplet nuclei, to close proximity transmission is currently uncertain. However, airborne transmission from person-to-person over long distances (including ventilation systems) is unlikely.

Healthcare facilities have ventilation requirements in place to help prevent and control infectious diseases that are associated with healthcare environments. For more information, see the Guidelines for Environmental Infection Control in Health-Care Facilities, available on the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/infectioncontrol/guidelines/environmental/index.html.

Non-healthcare (e.g., businesses & schools) building owners and managers should maintain building ventilation systems according to state/local building codes and applicable guidelines. Ensuring appropriate fresh air and ventilation rates is a practical step building owners and managers can take to ensure good indoor air quality.

Perhaps hospitals have established relevant protocols.  HSDS is your term.

Called one of the largest hospitals in my area and they mentioned they could give me their maintenance crew and that would work but for the public a HSDS sheet on line would be easy to review. That way the public could easily compare different Hospitals.

Many of my friends fully understand MSDS sheets. Please review with some you know. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think MSDS sheets are relevant.  They largely and briefly report specific data with some very limited stuff on disposal and safety.  You need more  for a protocl.

I would think for the public to understand the Hospital air safety systems of hospital comparisons an HSDS is sufficient. Then one can quickly look at a large variety of hospitals in my area and make a comparison. Even a program sharing comparisons can be an good app. 

The MSDS is only an example and an HSDS can be similar in some ways. HSDS could have a grade for each hospital, Safety systems callouts, etc. and should be very simple for the public to understand.

Does your HSDS and it's grading algorithm exist at this point?

Preliminary. 5 stars grading w/ a 1 star less safe than a 5 star for quick review then quantity of systems, then listing of systems with one sentence description. Link to the full description as already posted by CDC. Very little work for the hospital because everything is already defined, only a matter of Federal law requiring all hospitals fill the HSDS form.

Sounds pretty subjective.  Sure seems as a leap - a federal law requiring Ken's imagined and tbd "HSDS"? I doubt this will enjoy  fed legislative priority.

Possible like other suggestions, the only hope is smart ones catch on. Remember this is reality not imagination. My so called imagination engineered two of the world's largest nuclear plants, derived a new method of calculation of Mississippi River hydraulics equations accepted by Tulane University top profesor who is paid by the CORPS to perform hydraulic studies for them, developed horizontal vessel with elliptical end caps volume equation when height is known (40 years ago and copyrighted) now all process studies use the equation, spent 40 years engineering safety critical systems for refineries and chemical plants, but I am only a hobbiest on this subject as most of the others.

Everything I do is doubted by many but almost always comes to pass. I am a "f.....g Genus" according to a different Tulane professor, I thought that was funny.

It is about a vision not an imagination. As far as what I posted, I am trying to share about me but it is not about me.

Mor reason for HSDS sheets...

Please see proof  it may well be not low.

CDC: " Early reports suggest person-to-person transmission most commonly happens during close exposure to a person infected with COVID-19,"

Please see article: 

If the coronavirus is really airborne, we might be fighting it the wrong way

Expanded CDC response, helps fully understand.
