Restoration 101

Prevention, Detection and Remediation



Sponsored by  FirstOnsite logo new




Hospitals run a complex network of many moving parts on any given day. Add to that, a community of stakeholders that rely on a clean facility, continuation of services and healthy operation of these facilities for patients, doctors, healing, teaching and critical research.

While foreseeing any disaster is a superpower that facility professionals around the globe would pay top dollar for, unfortunately, no such product is currently available on the market. Major unforeseen losses in a hospital setting such as fires, floods and burst pipes, and internal and external damage due to natural causes, can’t necessarily be mitigated. However, superpowers aside, understanding the loss associated with such occurrences can help minimize the long-term impacts, mitigate any negative or adverse issues in the future and ultimately, get your hospital up and running again so that regular operations can resume with as little interruption as possible.

Learning Outcomes:

• Discuss the impacts that standing water or moisture can have within a hospital as a result of floods, broken waterlines, burst or cracked pipes and fire damage
• Learn about what you can look for in an effort to minimize risks associated with flooding/water loss, fires, asbestos, mold and other issues and occurrences that pose health and safety risks to the hospital staff, patients, visitors and the physical building
• Gain insights on what you can do to mitigate damage and when you may need to call in the experts
