Date published:

Part D Infection Prevention and Control has been written to assist project teams in the planning, design and construction of healthcare facilities. It was developed following a comprehensive review of infection prevention and control literature and with input from experts in the field of infection prevention and control. The information is organised in sections including:

  • building elements such as approaches to hand basins and isolation rooms
  • the physical environment describing elements such as air handling etc
  • surfaces and finishes
  • considerations relating to construction and renovation of healthcare facilities to minimise risk of infection.

An updated revision of Part D (Revision 7.0, 1 March 2016) has been uploaded. This revision reflects only minor changes that have been necessary to ensure consistency across all documents.
