What is the cost of Legionnaires Disease in the United States? What is the cost of a Legionella outbreak?
The Legionnaires cost calculator below will help you estimate the cost of a Legionnaires Disease outbreak in your facility if you are located in the U.S.
First, it’s important to realize that the costs of Legionnaires Disease in terms of human health and life are enormous. This should never be overlooked.
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. This can reduce legal liability by 90% as well as keep your facility visitors safe. An active water management program shows the facility was making a reasonable effort to keep clients and staff safe in regards 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 risks in your facility’s cold and hot water lines including domestic and utility water.
