Keeping patients, staff, and visitors safe, healthy, and happy is an immense responsibility — one that you take seriously. Pure Water Technology has healthcare water purification systems and ice dispensers that can help you in your efforts.
Pure, safe water and ice that tastes great encourages adequate hydration and facilitates healthier outcomes. Moreover, knowing your water is safe and free from contaminants, bacteria, and heavy metals (all of which can be especially dangerous to individuals with weakened immune systems) provides peace of mind.

Water is essential for sustaining life, and proper hydration is critical for patients under a facility’s care. Sadly, dehydration, which can exacerbate health conditions and cause additional issues, is common among senior individuals. Factors that increase the risk of dehydration for hospital patients and nursing home residents include the inability to drink or eat independently, medications with a diuretic effect or that cause diminished thirst, and reluctance to ask for water.
Despite federal, state, and municipal regulatory standards for drinking water, some factors beyond an organization’s control present contamination and safety risks. Storms, agricultural runoff, and environmental spills can potentially compromise public drinking water supplies. Also, healthcare facilities must stay vigilant in efforts to prevent Legionnaires’ disease. Outbreaks are associated with buildings that have complex water systems, such as hospitals and long-term care facilities. Another consideration is heavy metals. Water in healthcare facilities with aging plumbing infrastructure might contain high levels of lead and other metals.
Communities expect their healthcare organizations to adopt environmentally responsible practices. One way to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability is to install a water purification system, dramatically reducing plastic bottle waste by staff, patients, and visitors. Plastic has been found to increase greenhouse gas emissions — and contribute to global warming — at every stage of its lifecycle.
Choosing the right water filtration system can also reduce energy use, ultimately saving facilities money and improving their bottom line.
