Patients demand privacy, as well they should. So as new acute care hospitals are being built, they are accommodating these patient requests by building all private patient rooms. As older hospitals try to keep pace, they are renovating semi-private rooms to private rooms. But even in private rooms with a solid door, additional privacy is needed when the door is opened by a doctor, nurse, or visitor.
Curtain tracks have long been a familiar sight in hospitals and even with the emergence of private rooms, they are still needed around the patient's bed. When the curtains are closed, these tracks and curtains allow for privacy when the door to the room is open. Oftentimes, curtain tracks are mounted to the ceiling on just one side or 3/4 of the way around the patient's bed. A frequently used curtain track is our 88001 Privacy Cubicle Track, an aluminum track with silver satin finish and is available in 6 foot, 8 foot, 12 foot and 16 foot sections.
