AIA|LA Health Care Committee:
Hospital Rapid Response to COVID-19

Virtual Meeting – Registered attendees will be emailed virtual meeting instructions.


COVID-19 is most contagious when patients show up with life-threatening symptoms and need for
oxygen intervention at the hospital. Join our first online program to discover strategies and assess
alternatives to meet the critical surge of patients during this global pandemic. We will share best
practices on rapidly increasing bed capacity while minimizing spread to other patients and staff.

Learn how to support the safe segregation of suspected and confirmed patients, and modify HVAC
systems and air pressure to protect staff during interactions with the most contagious patients during
these unprecedented emergency conditions.


  1. Anticipate Airborne Infectious Isolation capacity for hospitals to accommodate the surge of critically ill COVID-19 patients
  2. Support hospital and agency bed shortage forecasting through smart tools and retrofit strategies
  3. Implement temporary and modular solutions for medical gases and emergency electrical power in strategic locations
  4. Execute key HVAC systems modifications to support the safe segregation of suspected and confirmed patients within controlled air environments
