Legionella Testing for Potable Water Systems Healthcare Facilities
The ASHRAE 188 standard and Federal mandates require Water Management Plans for all water systems with the potential for human contact. As of December 2016, Healthcare Facilities in New York State are required to adopt a Legionella testing and management plan for potable water systems. This requirement is part of the NYS Protection Against Legionella Legislation and covers all Article 28 Health Care Facilities. More information can be found at www.health.ny.gov.
The law requires the following:
Environmental Assessment Form (DOH-5222) – Completed Annually
Legionella Management Plan – Hardcopy On-site
Legionella Testing – Completed Quarterly
