Infection prevention risks associated with healthcare water systems and wastewater disposal

Considerations for planning of hospitals for the future

The Journal of Hospital Infection (JHI) is calling for original research, reviews and opinion on the topic of water and healthcare water systems, with a focus on wastewater, advance planning in new-build hospital projects, aerial transmission risks associated with water and innovations for mitigation.

As the NHS continues the planning and execution of new build hospitals and hospital buildings, the JHI plans to present research from around the world on innovations, new and existing risks to patients as staff, ways to mitigate existing challenges with healthcare water systems and best practices to consider when we plan future healthcare water systems.

Working with Guest Editor Dr Shanom Ali of the Environmental Research Laboratory at University College London Hospitals, United Kingdom, the JHI seeks to showcase this research for an international readership in a Special Edition dedicated to the topic, to be published in Spring 2024.
