MCS guidelines for South Australian hospitals
Saturday 24 July 2010
From the Government of South Australia:
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Hospital Guidelines 2010
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) can be a very debilitating condition and afflicts, to various degrees of severity, about one per cent of the adult population in SA. Treating a patient with MCS raises many challenges, one of which is providing an environment that is as devoid of chemical pollutants as possible.
The MCS Guidelines for South Australian Hospitals has been developed by the Department in conjunction with the intergovernmental MCS Reference Group, and is based on the Queensland Health model.
These guidelines are designed to help ensure that specific needs of MCS patients can be met, and in particular, to provide measures that should result in an environment that will minimise exposure of MCS patients to environmental chemicals. The implementation of these guidelines should reduce length of stay and improve individual health outcomes.
These guidelines can be downloaded from the Department’s web site at www.health.sa.gov.au.
