Make a list of all areas that are required to have positive or negative air pressure and ensure those areas are checked regularly to avoid possible condition-level findings by CMS, The Joint Commission (TJC) or another jurisdiction having authority. For rooms that are in older buildings or areas that might have a harder time maintaining the correct air pressure, check every morning, particularly if you are expecting survey.
