Quality control of hospital water systems

This paper considers some approaches to be taken for the monitoring of hospital water systems to assess their microbiological quality. The assessment consists of understanding the total numbers of microorganisms present; ways to detect the presence of certain pathogenic microorganisms (so-termed 'objectionable' organisms); and methods to assess water systems for bacterial endotoxin. Each of these represents an important area with which to assess the quality of hospital water, either at the time of generation or at point-of use.

In relation to this topic, Tim Sandle has written an article for the magazine Microbiolz India. The article and magazine can be accessed here.
