Full Description

The purpose of this study was to conduct a review of ANSI/ASHE/ASHRAE Standard 170‐2013 – Ventilation of Healthcare Facilities to determine whether the 886 requirements defined in the Standard (Part 4 of the FGI Guidelines) are supported by engineering and (or) scientific evidence. This process began by assembling each of the requirements into a comprehensive spreadsheet (Appendix A). From this, the authors and the Project Monitoring Subcommittee (PMS) assigned these requirements into one of three (3) categories: Rational inclusion defines requirements that fall under practical engineering or life-safety requirements; Clinical inclusion defines requirements that support clinical practices; Evidence-based inclusion defines those remaining requirements that are supported by published scientific literature.
