|(a) Hospital facilities. Refer to Texas Department of Health, Hospital Licensing, Physical Plant and Construction Requirements, New Construction Requirements, (25 Texas Administrative Code §133.162) (the Texas Hospital Licensing Law, Health and Safety Code Chapter 241), regarding ventilation requirements, general mechanical requirements, performance and acceptance of hospital facilities, and HVAC requirements, (25 Texas Administrative Code §133.169). (b) Correctional facilities. When correctional facilities consider these guidelines, they must also consider compliance with all of the regulations that may affect their mission to protect the general population by securely housing the criminal offenders of the State. Security issues or the original structure of earlier facilities may prevent certain ventilation practices from being incorporated into existing facility designs. The building owner/operator should prioritize projects based on the criteria above and complete those projects based on hazard concerns and financial ability. (c) Child-frequented facilities. Greater diligence should be taken to ensure indoor air quality in facilities occupied or frequented by children, such as schools and childcare facilities. Children are considered at higher risk for health problems from poor indoor air quality than are adults.
