Standards of Care

A Standard of Care is defined as acknowledged applicable laws, standards and guidelines.

OSHA (1998), Joint Commission Environment of Care (2001), ASHRAE Guideline 12-2000, ASHRAE Standard 188-2015 and VA Directive 1061 (2014) are Standards of Care which include critical recommendations for establishing and monitoring hot water system temperature control limits.

Reducing the Risk

Following a Standard of Care can minimize the risk of scald injury, Legionella-related illness and the associated litigation.

“Former guests of the Las Vegas Aria Resort & Casino can’t seek punitive damages in a case alleging they contracted Legionnaires’ disease from the hotel’s water system, because management took adequate water safety steps, a Nevada federal judge ruled Monday.” (Law 360 Legal News Service, 2015.)

“In 2014 ASHRAE came out with consensus guidelines, it’s actually a standard that is directed at primary prevention of Legionella growth and transmission in building water-systems. It calls for building-owners and managers to assess the water systems in their building, figure out where there are vulnerabilities, and come up with plans to monitor those.” (Laura Cooley, M.D., M.P.H. medical epidemiologist, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)
