Yan Chai Hospital, Hong Kong
Patients, visitors and staff were concerned that the premium positioning of this home for elderly residents was negatively impacted by unpleasant odours and a stifled environment.
Complaints of insufficient air circulation, and concerns over the general hygiene of the facilities were commonplace.
NCCO units were installed which quickly and effectively improved air quality and the public’s negative perception of poor air in the centre. This also lead to a general improvement in the residents’ experience throughout their environment.
As a result of these initiatives ‘Yan Chai Hospital Jockey Club Care & Attention Home’ was awarded an IAQ Certificate of Excellence from the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department.
