Enviropundit points us to the new document “Green Guide for Health Care” that outlines green building standards specifically for health care facilities. Among the contents,
it specifically outlines how to design for building operations. The teams for this include clinicians, administrators, plant operations/engineering staff, support services and housekeeping and work together throughout each project. It also includes recommendations to help fight infections, to design for round-the-clock occupancy, and to allow for better meals and meal prep areas.
