As part of the Project Firstline initiative, ASHE, in collaboration with the American Hospital Association (AHA), has released ventilation guidance and quick guides for facility managers and staff and healthcare workers so they can confidently make knowledgeable evidence-based decisions regarding ventilation in healthcare settings to keep patients and staff safe and reduce chance of contamination and infection from diseases that spread through the air. One guide is designed for health care facility managers and the other is for nurse managers and clinicians. 

The Health Care Facilities Managers Quick Guide is meant to be a reference with short answers to frequently asked questions regarding ventilation and infection control in the healthcare environment for facilities staff members. The guide is available to download here
