Legionnaires Cost Estimation Calculator
What is the financial impact of Legionnaires Disease on a facility in the U.S.? What is the cost of a Legionella outbreak for the facility owner?
The Legionnaires cost calculator below will help you estimate the cost of a Legionnaires Disease outbreak in your U.S. facility.
Certainly, the human costs of Legionnaires Disease in terms of health and life are enormous.
The monetary costs of Legionella and Legionnaires depend on several variables. The biggest cost factor is whether or not the hospital or facility has a defensible water management program in place. A water management program can reduce legal liability by 90%, and more important, keep your facility visitors safe. An active water management plan demonstrates that the facility was making a reasonable effort to keep clients and staff safe in regard to domestic and utility water.
By far the most critical step to keep Legionella under control and prevent Legionnaires disease is to have a Legionella Water Management Plan in place. Effective water management programs are meant to identify and reduce Legionella risks in your facility’s cold and hot water lines including domestic and utility water.
See our Legionella Demand Calculator to determine the total pounds of FAC (Free Available Chlorine or equivalent) needed per day to help keep your facility safe. Then see our “Comparison of Legionella / Pathogen Control Systems – Chlorine, Chlorine Dioxide, Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS)” which provides great insight into the best approaches to Legionella control.
