Four useful specification tips for improved hospitals Peta de Jager, Gingi Khoza, Toby van Reenen and Jako Nice Hospitals are widely regarded

as a complex building type, and, and engineering is a specialised endeavour. This is important to be aware of, because, provision of good infrastructure in the context of healthcare service delivery can literally be a matter of life and death. For example, if the hospital power supply is interrupted – even for a short period of time – and there is not a well-conceived redundancy plan, failure of mechanically ventilated breathing apparatus could result in asphyxiation, patients

or contracting an illness they did Hospital design, engineering and specification is not the only factor, but research has produced an evidence base to show how these can contribute positively to safety, health and healing. Here are just four of the many ways informed specification can reduce risk and result in better healthcare built environments.

TIP 1:

Understand the clinical procedures

on the operating table could be left vulnerable and lifts could stop, delaying patients on their way to receive critical care. This seems fairly obvious. Yet, observations in the field show that, all too often, insufficient care is taken in the planning, design, engineering, operation and maintenance of hospital infrastructure. The World Health Organization notes that, globally, at least 10% of hospital admissions result in adverse events which see

Good hospital design should balance the need for the building fabric to be loose-fit and adaptable with a need to support highly specific and specialised procedures. Did you know that, internationally, clinicians are always taught to approach from the patient’s right-hand side when doing general clinical procedures, such as taking vital statistics? The set-up of examination beds and all the medical paraphernalia in consulting rooms

Four useful tips

TIP 2:

The wash-hand basin and infection control

Wash-hand regimes and the requisite infrastructure are a critical cornerstone of infection prevention and control in any hospital setting because many hospital-acquired infections are transferred by hand from one person to another. Yet, uninformed wash-hand basin and tap selection or poor installation can actually contribute to hygiene problems and the spread of disease. Figure 1 – acceptable consulting room layout

A clinical wash-hand basin should therefore be preferred over a “normal” wash-hand basin. So what are the distinguishing features of a clinical wash-hand basin? From figure 3, it can be seen that a clinical wash-hand basin does not have an overflow or tap-holes, that it is not a drop-in or counter-top unit. The water stream from the taps must be aimed to avoid falling directly into the outlet, to avoid aerosolisation. Pressure compensating flow restrictors are advisable. These features allow for ease of decontamination and help avoid biofilm developing, which can harbour harmful microorganisms. In at

Gaps between the wash-hand basin and wall should be sealed. Mirrors are optional, but generally discouraged – especially in mental health and reconstructive surgery units.

TIP 3:

TIP 4:

Beware gas

Compressed gas is useful for a variety of purposes in hospital settings and can be fixed and piped in the very fabric of the infrastructure, or mobile and deployed to where it is needed. Only suitably qualified and skilled professionals should work on these installations and designers and engineers must work closely with healthcare service providers to understand their specific needs, and follow applicable standards and regulations. All compressed gas cylinders (regardless of size) need to be secured to racks, walls, work benches, or trolleys by means of a strong chain

Conclusion

The foregoing four essential tips provide some small insight into why hospital design and engineering can be both fascinating and intimidating. Luckily, there is plenty of guidance freely available. Much of it mandatory in South Africa, particularly in the public sector. For example, find the IUSS (Infrastructure Unit System Support) suite of documents

online at www.iussonline.co.za. If

healthcare architectural design and engineering interests you, consider joining the South African Federation of Hospital Engineering, known as SAFHE, the voluntary association for built environment professionals of all disciplines, healthcare managers, clinicians, health planners, and more.

Hospitals discover the benefits of installing antimicrobial copper components Frequently touched surfaces enable the spread of infectious pathogens throughout healthcare facilities which contributes to the acquisition of hospital acquired infections. To combat bioburden, hand washing and routine disinfection of surfaces are the first line of defense. However, these conventional tools fall short because they are intermittent and depend on human behavior. On average, healthcare providers wash their hands less than half of the times they should, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Infection (CDC). Bioburden can also rapidly rebound on surfaces in the time between cleanings. Antimicrobial copper alloy surfaces can help address these gaps and enhance infection-prevention programs through a systems-based approach. Copper alloys are solid metals with inherent, broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties. These versatile engineering materials are fabricated into durable, attractive products like door hardware and IV poles that continuously kill >99.9 percent of pathogens within 2 hours. Copper alloys are not a coating or an additive and the antimicrobial properties do not diminish or wear out. No additional maintenance is required beyond routine cleaning to

remove dirt and grime. Copper alloys are also completely recyclable and are made mostly from recycled content. Copper alloys secured public health registration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2008 after rigorous efficacy testing against infectious bacteria including MRSA. Additionally, wellover 150 peer-reviewed publications have reported on the broad-spectrum efficacy of copper alloys in laboratory, clinical and field settings. A multi-year U.S. Department of Defense-funded clinical trial conducted in the Intensive Care Units of three U.S. hospitals also reported that patients treated in rooms outfitted with antimicrobial copper surfaces had 58 percent fewer infections.

COATINGS There are two aspects relevant to paints and coatings when specifying for healthcare facilities. The first is that paints containing anti-bacterial properties should be considered, and the other is the effect of colour on healing. Coatings must be able to withstand continuous washing and cleaning with harsh chemicals. The seamless finish that painting a surface provides is ideal for infection control but care must be taken to protect walls from bumps and scratches. For detailed guidance on selecting coatings for hospitals refer to Internal Wall Finishes in Healthcare Facilities published by the Infrastructure Unit System Support – IUSS – project, an initiative of the National Department of Health http://bit.ly/ISSU-WALL-FINISHES For an interesting study on colour in healthcare settings, refer to The Application of Colour in Healthcare Settings http://bit.ly/ADS-Colour-Healthcare

environmental sustainability strategy for implementation throughout the Group’s hospital, primary care, renal dialysis and emergency medical services operations. In addition to upgrading existing hospitals, environmentally sustainable principles are integral to the design of all new Netcare facilities. By adopting best practices Netcare is focusing on ensuring the environmental sustainability of its operations in terms of electricity and water supply for its highacuity operations. This is critical in delivering the best clinical outcomes and patient experience, as well as limiting exposure to future utility cost increases.

FLOORING When specifying flooring for hospitals, you need to take into account the traffic and use anticipated for the specific location in the hospital. In general, ceramic tiles and rubber or vinyl flooring options are a more sensible choice as they are easier to clean and hard wearing. Seamless floor coatings, laminated flooring or cork sheeting are also worth considering depending on the intended application and budget. Take into account factors such as sound deadening qualities, slipresistance, anti-bacterial properties and longevity. We recommend that specifiers refer to Internal Floor Finishes in Healthcare Facilities by IUSS. Infrastructure Unit Support Systems (IUSS) aims to optimise the acquisition and management of South Africa’s public healthcare infrastructure.

HVAC – HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR-CONDITIONING HVAC services are exceptionally important in terms of hospitals and clinics,

with stringent requirements in place to ensure optimal and contamination-free operation. These days, in line with green building principles and energy-saving initiatives, it is advisable to look into natural ventilation in hospital areas where this may be possible.

Helping building designers optimise fan and pump performance in HVAC pump applications Building designers looking to optimise fan and pump performance in HVAC applications can now take advantage of the new LTP-B Eco drive from SEW-EURODRIVE. SEW-EURODRIVE saw a market gap for a unit specifically for the HVAC industry, National Sales Manager Norman Maleka comments. “Building designers are always the first adopters of new technology such as this. We are quite active in the HVAC sector in Cape Town, for example, and realised that we had to rise to the challenge of meeting the needs of this specific sector.”

What distinguishes this purposebuilt drive is the fact that different parameters can be set, such as for fan or pump control. In terms of a commercial building such as a hospital, traditional drives meant that fans had to operate continually at full speed. “With the improved functionality of the LTP-B Eco HVAC drive, facilities managers can now control a fan by only running it according to demand, for example. This represents a major advantage in terms of energy-saving, as it allows for total flow control,” Maleka highlights. SEW-EURODRIVE Tel: +27 (0)11 248 7000

INTERNAL WALLING AND PARTITIONS Lightweight yet robust internal walling is ideal for hospitals. However, the type of internal walling and partitions selected will be determined by the function of the room or space it is intended for. Factors to take into account include humidity, acoustics, robustness and ability to withstand frequent cleaning, fire regulations and hygienic properties. We recommend you refer to Internal Wall Finishes in Healthcare Facilities for excellent advice and guidelines on this aspect http://bit.ly/ ISSU-WALL-FINISHES published by the Infrastructure Unit System Support – IUSS – project, an initiative of the National Department of Health.

Eng. qualified engineer”, which in terms of the NBR would be a professional registered engineer, which could also be a registered technologist with appropriate experience in hospital services design and it would have to be a “Rational Design”. SANS10400-P is the NBR design and construction standard for the design of a sanitary drainage system of a building and it contains seven (7) “Regulations” which describe the “performance” of a sanitary drainage system for buildings and its premises. These performance regulations are The design of hospitals is under the control of the Department of Health and as per their document R158. This document is unfortunately not complete and does not address the water and drainage systems of hospitals, it only states that it must be “certified by an “appropriately qualified engineer”. It also notes that the design of a hospital must comply with the National Building Regulations (NBR), where there are no specific regulations

drainage system for buildings and also the basis for a RD. Compliance with these performance regulations can be achieved by means of a set of “Deem-To-Satisfy-Rules”, (DTSR) which are basically a “recipe” to follow, which is compulsory if the owner decides to apply it. These DTSR only address two types of buildings, namely housing and office class, and do not address hospitals per se. However, the DTSR have very good

compulsory and form the basis of any

Healthcare Design 2018

Some examples are that horizontal drainage of waste water and soil


Plumbing

water must never be combined but be separate up to the stack pipe which may be a combined stack pipe. There must not be long horizontal collector drainage pipes in the ceilings and, where necessary when it is a branch pipe, then not longer than 6m. It is important to design the system so that backflow from the soil drain cannot push back up into the waste water system, because then sewage could come out of the showers or the baths. Use the “discharge unit” system to determine the pipe diameters, as it makes provision for “probable simultaneous discharge”. It has worked for centuries all over the world and is reliable. The second design method to comply with the performance criteria is to do a rational design which may only be done by a registered Engineer / Technologist. There are a number of other “principles” which we have now included in the latest SANS10400-P with illustrations, soon to be published. The important elements in terms of hospital drainage design are as follows: 1. Appropriate and good durable piping materials.

2. Appropriate access to and into the

piping. This is absolutely critical and the responsibility of the architect in conjunction with the engineer.

3. Access by means of manholes and inspection chambers is

preferred as it allows downstream and upstream cleaning with high pressure water systems.

4. High pressure cleaning (rodding) is highly preferred as it is more

effective and it does not damage the piping.

5. Minimum external drainage piping diameter preferred to be 150mm ID to prevent blockages.

6. Access to be situated where

drains enter/ exit from buildings in order to be able to rod into the building. This access should preferably be a manhole or inspection chamber.

7. All bends under floors in ground and above to be long radius

consisting of two 45° bends with a meter of piping in between.

8. Junctions to have a 45° bend with a meter of piping in between the junction and the bend.

9. Internal building discharge pipes to be separate pipes for soil

and separate for waste water to prevent overflow of soil water into the shower or bath or floor drains.

10. Provide backflow prevention with overflow outside the building

where the soil waste water exits or enters the building (this is all on ground level only).

11. Internal soil and waste water

discharge pipes to be 100mm diam. (ID) and minimum gradient 1:60. Please note the ID is essential.

12. Where waste (50) pipes drop into the floor, it must be

connected with a 100mm diam. “floor-stub-stack” to the underfloor 100mm diam. discharge waste water piping.

Healthcare Design 2018

69


Plumbing

These floor-stub-stacks can be used as access to the under-floor discharge piping system.

13. All underfloor piping, bends,

junctions, change of directions, change of gradient must all be “long-radius” and have appropriate access from above where possible and in service ducts where possible to allow easy access which is critical for maintenance.

14. Ventilation must be provided on

all branches longer than 6m and at least one 100mm diam. open vent pipe at the highest furthest point of the drainage system and ventilation also where necessary elsewhere.

15. Pumping systems must be

provided where really necessary and only if it cannot be avoided and then it must be only a very high quality and very reliable robust pump system with separate maceration system and with appropriate overflow storage capacity.

16. The pumping main must be high quality, durable piping material

such as “Mineflow” or similar type of robust piping.

17. The pumping system must have full redundancy and have back up power.

18. Hospitals have equipment that discharges effluent of high

temperatures and which requires piping that can handle such hot effluent. For this, cast iron piping

70

Healthcare Design 2018

is the best. In some cases a “cooling box” is also required.

19. Long horizontal pipes in ceilings

shall not be allowed, and only if it is a branch pipe not longer than 6m or 10m if it has ventilation.

20. Floor drains without water

discharging into it must be avoided. Where no water can discharge into the drain, a small water supply pipe must be provided with a valve to flush the system daily.

21. Grease trapping must be provided where necessary and as close as

possible from the source where it is generated. Arrangements must be made for the removal from the site of the grease and fat.

22. The emergency shower at the ambulance entrance must

discharge into a holding tank and the contents be removed from site by an approved company.

23. Please note the QA is the

responsibility of the contractor and not of the engineer. However, the engineer must see that the contractor applies the QA and the engineer must approve the system of the contractor when the contact begins.

24. The contractor to study and apply

the “works information document”.

25. The “works information
