MDR TB Isolation
We have received funds to build a new home for our residential MDR-TB patients in Western Nepal. By far the easiest and cheapest would be to build it on top of our (one story) hospital, as this would avoid having to clear land and lay an additional foundation. No shared HVAC systems with the main building would be installed, and the access would be completely separate. Is this safe, or do we need to find another site? Any data or best practice recommendations on how far isolation facilities have to be from normal patient care areas?
