Controlling the spread of infectious diseases is essential to maintaining a safe care environment. Whenever possible patients with known or suspected infectious diseases should be put under patient quarantine. Patients are quarantined in isolation rooms to minimise the spread of airborne infections. A patient isolation room helps prevent direct and indirect contact transmission, or droplet transmission of infectious agents. An infected patient can easily contaminate the surrounding environment, patient isolation rooms minimise contact providing effective infection control.
A patient isolation room aims to control the airflow in the room so that number of airborne infectious particles are low, reducing the risk of airborne infection spreading making it crucial for all isolation rooms to have the correct exhaust air ventilation. A patient isolation room with appropriate air handling is particularly important for reducing the risk of micro-organisms being spread by airborne transmission from a source patient to susceptible patients and other persons.
