Need of RO plant in retirement homes and assisted living centers
Effective filtration systems, it goes without saying, are what keep us healthy. Everyone requires clean water, so it's surprising that some senior homes and assisted living centers, don't make frequent water quality tests a priority. Facilities that do not maintain their commercial water filtration systems face the following health risks.
LEAD POISONING AND CONTAMINATION
Purification systems must be carefully monitored in assisted living communities with private water sources. Private water wells, unlike municipal supply, are not subject to city rules. It is the responsibility of the facility provider to keep their commercial water filtration systems in good working order. Because residents rely on personnel to properly manage the facilities, retirement homes must supply acceptable water quality.
Lead piping is frequently used in old, poorly maintained systems that would never be built today. When elderly persons are exposed to exceptionally high levels of lead over a lengthy period of time, plumbing systems with lead pipes may cause illness. Uncontrolled water wells also carry the potential of containing harmful chemicals that might cause long-term health problems.
WEAKER IMMUNE SYSTEMS
Anyone, regardless of where they live, could face unfavorable health consequences if their water purification system is not properly maintained. Residents at assisted living residences, on the other hand, are more vulnerable to Legionnaires' disease and other bacterial infections. Our immune systems aren't what they used to be as we get older. The only thing worse than being exposed to toxins on a regular basis is not being able to combat diseases that arise as a result.
These and many other reasons are why health care facilities must place a premium on their patients' well-being. A team of specialists will do annual maintenance to ensure that older persons receive the water quality they require to maintain a good standard of living. Nursing home residents are not only reliant on facility providers for sufficient water quality, but they are also more vulnerable to long-term consequences from toxins than other age groups.
Taking action is the first step toward better water quality. If one can't recall the last time your facility's water purification system was serviced, contact the water treatment professionals at Netsol Water to schedule an examination. In any sort of health care facility, our staff can install, inspect, and repair water purification systems.
Legionnaires' disease is a kind of pneumonia caused by dangerous bacteria found in drinking water. According to research, residents at assisted living residences are at a higher risk of contracting Legionnaires' disease. In fact, one study found that 19% of participants developed Legionnaires' disease after visiting a nursing home.
Residents of such facilities have little control over the quality of their drinking water. Homeowners have a better chance of avoiding bacteria-related illnesses since they own their home and can control the situation. Residents in nursing homes do not have the luxury. Hundreds of lives are harmed when health care facilities fail to maintain commercial water filtration equipment. As a result, it's critical that site managers schedule regular inspections with local water treatment professionals.
