Since airborne transmission of infectious respiratory diseases has become an increasing public health concern, indoor air quality (IAQ) has gained considerable traction. The hospital indoor environment is a complex ecosystem, and strategies to improve it require a stronger appreciation of its potentially modifiable determinants.

In hospitals, ventilation remains a challenge because elevated levels of carbon monoxide, bioaerosols, and chemical compounds persist in the air despite mechanical ventilation.

A growing number of industries are recognizing the importance of indoor air quality as a public health issue. In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through airborne transmission, more attention must be paid to healthcare facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes. According to research, the Coronavirus can persist in the air for up to eight minutes following a conversation. Therefore, indoor air quality should be monitored and optimized frequently, especially during times of change.

In order to minimize bacterial growth, blood should be kept at a standard temperature. When blood is kept beyond the higher defined limit, even for a short time, bacteria infiltrated into it from the donor will quickly grow and multiply
