Interdisciplinary Design Teams in Poland - Architecture as a Tool for Preventing Hospital-Acquired Infections

Abstrakt

Hospital-acquired infections pose a problem, which directly affects the safe usage of healthcare facilities. On a global scale, the level of hospital-acquired infections (HAI) is estimated to affect 5–15% of those hospitalised. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that, on an annual basis, procedures preventing hospital-acquired infections consume 80 billion dollars [1]. In this context, it becomes important to create conditions, which will significantly reduce the occurrence of hospital-acquired infections. Preliminary research in this field has shown that a correctly functioning system reduces the risk of the occurrence of hospital-acquired infections by anywhere from 55% to as much as 70% [2]. Architectural solutions affect sanitary and hygienic safety, as well as epidemiological safety, by appropriately shaping spatial parameters. The article is set to show the relations between architectural actions and epidemiological safety, as well as presenting the need for an on-going assessment of architectural solutions by interdisciplinary teams of specialists.
