Drain and Plumbing Issues Pose Risks
Sewer backups, septic issues and clogged drain lines pose a particular hazard for infection, promoting microbial growth and serving as a source for antibiotic resistant pathogens, and healthcare-associated infections. Hospitals and nursing homes utilize advanced plumbing systems and are often overlooked for issues within the New Jersey Health Care System.
Just like hospital systems in New Jersey, Adult and Children Nursing Care Facilities require the same advanced sewer, septic, and stormwater management. The CDC considers it essential that hospitals and nursing homes have a management program that is effective in limiting harmful organisms in their plumbing from growing and spreading in their facility.
In addition to the three main services above, Drain visions also offers:
- Drain Cleaning – the ability to use industrial based sewer cleaning machines to roto-rooter out the drain or sewer line.
- Pump Management – We provide knowledge and maintenance on existing pumps and pump stations, including sewer muncher pumps.
- Preventative Maintenance – We conduct, perform, and use metrics to assist maintenance programs, reducing backups and business disruption.
We at Drain Visions know that system disruptions, pressure drops, obstruction, blockages and main breaks are all factors that can impact the quality of water within a hospital or nursing care facility.
Proper routine inspection coupled with preventative maintenance with representatives from the Drain Visions and facilities staff is encouraged.
Hospitals, nursing care facilities and healthcare systems are often living with issues that are often unseen . Proper attention to these systems is highly critical to address problems in advance to maintain proper operation of the systems.
