ABHR Dispensers

by Brad Keyes, CHSP, on May 29, 2020 1:00:33 AM

Q: Are there any rules on alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) dispensers being mounted in non-sprinklered patient care areas?

A: Yes. According to section 19.3.2.6 of the 2012 LSC, ABHR dispensers may only be installed in healthcare occupancies over carpeted floors if the smoke compartment is fully protected with sprinklers. Other than that, there are no other requirements regarding sprinklers and ABHR dispensers.
