Why should healthcare facilities care about particle counting?

Hospitals are one of the most tightly-controlled spaces in terms of monitoring the indoor environment. ASHRAE Standard 170 is used by both The Joint Commission (TJC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as the fundamental reference for adequate levels of temperature, humidity, differential pressure, and air change rate in many spaces within a hospital.
