Abstract

Any upgrading process aims for improving and optimizing operational conditions of every work environment. It generally includes the development of a change focused on organizational, technological and structural advancements in the expected conditions of specific active fields of interest. The upgrading process has to be always well planned and organized in order to be a source of growth for the structure considered and not becoming an obstacle for the daily routine of the structure itself. This aspect is much more relevant in case of health facilities since everyday activities must be constantly kept at a standard level and under an accurate control. To meet the needs of technological and legislative progress, the change following the upgrading process must be a long-term one. However, it will represent a significant variable both for the employees working conditions and the quality of the health care given to the patients. In this work an objective and complete procedure has been developed to quantify, in an impartial and univocal way, the impact that an upgrading process can have on health activities. In order to prevent and neutralize all the possible risks for patients, employees and health workers, it is of utmost importance the objectively evaluation of effects and hazards that these processes involve.
