Who oversees ICRA guidelines for hospital construction?

Hospitals typically employ safety personnel to prioritize patient safety and to ensure that doctors, nurses and staff can do their jobs in a safe environment.

Oversight of ICRA guidelines for hospital construction, however, is often a shared responsibility in which the Interim Life Safety Measures (ILSM) are combined with the Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) guidelines, enabling the safety person to oversee the combined document (or checklists) with input from the Infection Preventionist. Ultimately, facilities are responsible for compliance with current requirements.
