Unicel Architectural issues newsletter on Ebola and the need for safer, more hygienic patient isolation spaces
Addresses AIIR design considerations for layout, materials, hygiene and patient tranquility
We’ve noted a dramatic increase in demand from hospitals for our hermetically-sealed louvers-within-glass units that reduce the risk of infection.
MONTREAL, Canada – December 15, 2014 – Unicel Architectural today announced the latest issue of its Reflections newsletter for architects and building professionals. The December 2014 Reflections edition addresses design considerations for airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIRs). More and more healthcare facilities are building AIIRs to better prepare for Ebola and other infectious diseases.
“With widespread global travel, the spread of infectious diseases is not just limited to Ebola,” said Jean-François Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “Healthcare facility managers are increasingly planning for quarantine or isolation rooms that allow for diligent patient care while protecting health-care workers and the rest of the hospital. For example, here at Unicel, we’ve noted a dramatic increase in demand from hospitals for our hermetically-sealed louvers-within-glass units that reduce the risk of infection.”
Doctors and nurses treating those who are infected are at greatest risk of getting infected themselves. A properly designed AIIR can be a very effective infection control measure. The Reflections newsletter entitled “Ebola and the need for safer, more hygienic patient isolation spaces” addresses design considerations for layout, materials, hygiene and patient tranquility.
