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, 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.

The S100 Point of Use filters provide an up to 90 day, FDA-cleared solution for ultimate peace of mind during emergency outbreaks of water borne pathogens, or for additional bacterial protection in areas of the hospital with immunocompromised patients.
Sinks are another source of patient exposure given the transfer of bacteria through atomization. The DSU-H is easily installed using standard plumbing hardware and designed to provide protection in this area for up to 6 months.
Showers are one of the primary sources of patient exposure given the transfer of bacteria through atomization. The S100 Shower Hand Held microfilter provides a point-of-use protection for up to 3 months. The SSU-H and DSU-H in-line ultrafilters are easily installed and designed to provide up to 3 and 6 months of protection, respectively.
One of the Critical Control Points in a hospital’s water management plan is ice machines. The DSU-H’s dual-stage design provides redundancy and up to 6 months of protection in a self-contained unit. The HydraGuard ultrafilter cartridge provides up to 6 month of protection and works with standard 10” cartridge housings with a 222 connector. The HydraGuard-F provides up to 12 months of protection with our unique forward-flushing design. Pictures of the back-flush water from DSU-H filters in the field for up to 6 months provide an indication of the what kind of particle density exists in potable water.
