Swing-Arm Privacy Curtains
We installed privacy curtains in the patient rooms on swing arms. We used our own Eaze-Drape curtains for easy removal and cleaning by maintenance staff. They were also treated with the Ultra-Fresh treatment.
For the Mental Care Lounges we installed Eaze Drape to allow maintenance staff to easily remove the curtain for cleaning. Breakaway clips were also used to ensure patient safety and reduce the chance of self-harm. Learn More about Eaze Drape and how it can reduce maintenance costs.
StayDry Shower Curtains
Custom shower curtains were manufactured and installed by Rodco for all 550 private accessible showers. In partnership with StayDry, we created custom shower curtains with an upper mesh providing more light, increased air flow and Extra visual safety on the patient. This follows past installations at Victoria General, Royal D + T, and Saanich Peninsula Hospitals. The Vancouver Island Health Authority chose StayDry curtains for their unique, patented sealing system and their Ultra-fresh anti-microbial treatment.
After 50 wash processes plus a powder acid wash within VIHA’s own laundry system, the anti-bacterial test results showed the treatment remained over 90% effective against S. aureus E. coli, MRSA, and Listeria.
Motorized Solarweave Blinds
Motorized blinds are operated by low voltage switches on the wall and a low voltage connection to the Hill-Rom beds. They provide patients with protection from the sun while still allowing a view of the outside while recovering.
