As the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak widens and the number of patients being admitted to hospitals grows, medical professionals and hospital administrators are looking for emergency alternatives which provide more beds for patients during this crisis. Whether it’s leveraging empty facilities, re-purposing space within an existing hospital, or building temporary structures to serve as hospitals, many options are being implemented to best serve the public as the Coronavirus spreads.
Distancing, quarantines and isolation have become the new normal. Medical professionals are making do with limited personal protection equipment (PPE). One technique that has long been used in hospitals to provide both privacy and a barrier between patients is the use of hospital privacy cubicle curtains. These hospital curtains are typically made of durable fabric that can easily be laundered and installed on tracks with rollers to provide easy mobility of the curtain as it is opened and closed. Often the fabrics utilized are anti-microbial to reduce the transfer of infection from one person to another via the curtains. This type hospital curtain typically has mesh headers that allow for sprinkler systems to be effective for full room coverage in the event of a fire. Hospital curtains must always be made of Fire Retardant (FR) fabric for safety purposes. Despite any rush to assemble a temporary facility, these safety attributes must always be considered.
