The recent addition of Legionella risk prevention measures to CMS site inspections of hospitals and long term care facilities, based on guidance from ASHRAE 188-2015, will increase the focus of infection control personnel and facilities engineers across the industry. This mandate from CMS will ensure that every medical facility has an appropriate water management plan to protect patients and staff from the risks of waterborne pathogens.
