Infection Prevention and Control Solutions for Jails and Correctional Facilities
We understand that safety is of the utmost importance throughout the prison system, and this extends to its health and wellness practices. From coronavirus and tuberculosis to influenza, highly communicable diseases present significant challenges to jails and correctional facilities throughout the United States and around the globe. To overcome these hurdles, AeroMed® Technologies has developed advanced infection prevention and control (IPC) products and services that prevent widespread illness by promoting healthier indoor environments for officers, staff, and inmates.
Supporting Safer Federal, State and Local Facilities
The chance of spreading disease is high in indoor environments, especially those where wearing masks and taking other common precautions may pose a security risk. For this reason, AeroMed® Technologies has developed leading-edge IPC support solutions that can be installed throughout a wide variety of spaces within a jail or correctional facility, such as:
- Security offices
- Holding cells
- Common rooms
- Health clinics
Our team performs a thorough risk assessment to understand the challenges of your building. This assessment takes into account the current occupancy, specific risks within different areas, the levels of proximity between officers, staff, inmates, and visitors, and other aspects exclusive to your facility. Once our evaluation is complete, we’ll recommend the products that best suit your needs.
IPC Solutions for Jails and Correctional Facilities
Our products are guided by more than 30 years of design expertise and advanced engineering techniques. They’re carefully crafted under the guidance of leading scientific researchers, medical organizations, and healthcare providers to ensure effective results and can be tailored to meet the unique needs of your facility. Some of our equipment includes:
- Upper-room germicidal ultraviolet (UR GUV) fixtures: Putting ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) to work, these fittings target DNA and RNA to damage bacteria and viruses at the core. As pathogens travel into the room’s upper air space, these fixtures render them inactive and foster a healthier environment. Our UR GUV luminaries can work in conjunction with advanced filtration to add an extra layer of defense. They generate high levels of UV-C irradiance in the upper room, as confirmed by independent laboratory tests, while required safety testing documents the residual levels in the occupied spaces are within accepted standards.
- HEPA air purifiers: Our air purification devices eliminate 99.97% of all airborne particles measuring 0.3 microns and larger thanks to advanced HEPA filtration materials. Available for portable, ducted, and in-ceiling placement, many of our HEPA purifiers offer options for negative pressure applications and all contain MERV-rated pre-filters to ensure optimal efficacy.
Our goal is to seamlessly install airborne infectious disease control and prevention equipment that meets your needs. If your facility requires a custom-tailored solution, simply discuss your needs with our team. Aside from standard features, many of our IPC solutions offer additional options for flexible configurations.
