Hospitals and doctors’ offices— two places that most people don’t love to go to but are absolutely essential to our well-being. Maybe it’s the fluorescent lights, the smell of antiseptic in the air, the constant buzz of nurses and doctors going in and out, or the feeling that life could change instantly.
Regardless of your personal feelings toward hospitals, you can agree that when it comes to receiving life-saving care, you’re thankful for those fluorescent lights, paper-thin gowns and the doctors and nurses coming in and out of your room.
According to the American Hospital Association, there are over 6,000 hospitals in the United States, and in 2022, there were 33,356,853 admissions to these 6,000 hospitals. Imagine the problems it would cause if these hospitals were rendered inoperable because of microbial growth found in patient rooms, a large water loss in the operating room, or structural damage to multiple floors after a natural disaster.
It’s not only critical for hospitals to remain operable but also to remain completely free of harmful contaminants that could jeopardize a patient’s health. Especially for children, the elderly, and those who are immuno-compromised or have pre-existing respiratory conditions, mold can cause sneezing, runny noses, red eyes, skin rashes, dizziness, headaches asthma attacks, and other health concerns.
By offering the highest quality of services when it comes to mold mitigation, decontamination, water loss restoration and emergency response plans, Sasser Restoration has been trusted by some of the nation’s most renowned hospitals to come in and bring their buildings back to life.
One particular case involved a multi-story medical facility that experienced a sewage loss on the third floor. Multiple offices, patient rooms and surgical rooms were contaminated resulting in the need for immediate containment and remediation.
Sasser stepped in immediately to mitigate the situation. Our environmental hygienist developed a specific protocol and led the coordinated clearance of all spaces. After our team had contained and resolved the issue, third-party testing was conducted to ensure all bacteria were eliminated.
Throughout the course of this project, Sasser managed over 49K square feet with 25 team members and solved for $530K in mitigation and repairs.
