Window Treatments For Health Care Facilities

Aug 7 2015

Just like a house, health care facilities also require window treatments. Each area of a health care facility needs a specific type of window treatment. This post will tell you about what window treatments are best for specific areas of a health care facility.

Lobby


The lobby is the area of a health care facility with the most traffic. That being the case, window treatments for a lobby of health care facilitiesmust not be bulky. Light window treatments are preferred over bulky ones because it makes a room feel less crowded. When it comes to light window treatments for health care facilities’ lobbies, solar shades is the best. Solar shades, unlike blinds and curtains, are light and airy.

Other than window treatments, health care facilities also use window tinting to decrease glaring sun rays from getting inside the lobby.

Waiting Rooms

The best window treatments for waiting rooms of health care facilities are honeycomb shades. Interior decorators of hospitals style waiting rooms with honeycomb shades to increase comfort and give a sense of psychological security. Interior decorators say that honeycomb shades mimic a home’s atmosphere which increases comfort to family, friends and relatives who are anxious about a loved one’s ongoing surgery.

Physical Exam Rooms


Most health care facilities don’t have windows in their physical exam rooms. But to some health care facilities that have windows, they use window treatments such as vertical blinds and mini blinds. This is because physical exam rooms are often cleaned on a day to day basis and blinds are easy to clean. Moreover, vertical blinds and mini blinds are opted over fabric curtains as the latter easily gathers dust, allergens and airborne microbes.

Emergency Rooms

An emergency room is a multiple occupancy room of a health care facility. This area makes use of privacy curtains to divide the room into different sections for various patients. These privacy curtains are compliant to the rules of the National Fire Protection Association.

Operating Rooms


As this area needs to be kept sterile at all times, operating rooms don’t use window treatments unlike the other areas of a health care facility. This is because window treatments can easily harbor microorganisms. Furthermore, operating rooms of health care facilities seldom have windows. If they do, those windows are just tinted rather than treated with coverings.

Mental Facility


Psychiatrists opt to use heavy drapes and sound proof window treatments to psychiatric health care facilities. These window treatments make a room feel warmer, cozier, and safer.
