Hospitals, clinics and other healthcare-related facilities have a unique environment-they are required to establish and maintain a sterile environment in order to continuously provide patients with the most hygienic treatment.
In order to do this, as well as to optimize the layout of the ward and save money, many hospitals use three-dimensional curtains made of special medical fabrics (ie, dividers suspended from ceiling rails or other supporting structures) to create individual, dedicated Space for their patients. By dividing the patient's ward in this way, hospital staff can also perform medical care faster and easier.
Tips for choosing the right hospital curtain
Due to these special needs, hospitals must use higher quality curtains in curtains than traditional facilities. For example, curtains in hospitals must be able to withstand:
Mass use by multiple people
Stains, bad smells and liquids
The curtains of the hospital may also need to include:
There is a row of meshes on the top (if required by local fire regulations) so that the fire sprinklers installed on the ceiling can work normally in the event of a fire. This row of mesh structures can also provide more light and air circulation for the patient's room.
There must be enough space between the bottom of the curtains and the floor (to prevent staining the fabric when the hospital staff is mopping and cleaning the floor).
As a result, there are many important factors to consider when choosing a hospital cubicle curtain or shower curtain. Therefore, buyers often ask: how to choose the right fabric?
Obviously, every hospital has different requirements. However, here are some good general guidelines to use when buying a new hospital cubicle curtain or hospital shower curtain:
Hospital cubicle curtains
The fabric should:
Flame-resistant, anti-fouling, anti-fluid and anti-odor
Contains an antibacterial additive, which will slowly release to the surface over time, because antibacterial curtains can not only prevent and control pathogens and bacteria, but also minimize hospital-acquired infections.
Anti-static (to prevent static electricity from interfering with sensitive medical equipment)
Hypoallergenic (to protect patients from allergic reactions)
Strong, durable and tear resistant
Does not contain heavy metals, such as lead, chromium, molybdenum, cadmium, etc.
The correct fabric should also:
It is convenient for the hospital staff to clean on the spot
Integrate with the decoration style of the hospital
Hospital shower curtain
Many people use hospital showers. This means that the correct shower curtain must serve two important purposes: 1) prevent water from leaking onto the floor; 2) prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. Therefore, looking for a shower curtain is:
Anti-mold, anti-fouling and anti-odor
Durable and easy to clean
By using the above standards as a general guide, you can not only choose a high-quality fabric for your hospital cubicles and shower curtains, but you can also use them for a long time and meet all necessary regulatory requirements.
