An Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) is a multidisciplinary process that focuses on reducing risk from infection throughout facility planning, design, and construction (including renovation) activities. A multidisciplinary team considers:
- the environment
- infectious agents
- human factors
- the impact of the proposed project.
The team includes, at a minimum, experts in infectious disease, infection control, patient care, epidemiology, facility design, engineering, construction, and safety, as circumstances dictate.
