Disinfection of Hospital Water

Osorno has successfully applied chlorine dioxide disinfection technology to the treatment of water distribution systems in hospitals. Medical specialists determined that the legal limit for chlorination residuals (1 mg/l) was insufficient to disinfect newly connected pipes. The bacteria Pseudomonas spp. were used as a proxy for infection danger to patients. Initial samples from the water distribution system indicated the presence of bacteria (Pseudomonas spp.). Following treatment with chlorine dioxide, these levels dropped to zero.  Given the immune-suppressed condition of many hospital patients, infection via airborne bacteria from faucets and flushing toilets is a concern.  Chlorine dioxide disinfection technology is ideally suited to treating water in hospitals, care homes and other facilities that cater to patients with suppressed immune systems
