Beijing University Cancer Hospital has a special ward – as warm and comfortable as home.
Medical service providers are paying more attention to the experience of medical facilities and towards “patient-centered” care.1
This new shift in focus not only allows doctors to take care of those who count on their expertise but also ensures that people receiving care feel comfortable and cared for.
Beijing University Cancer Hospital and Glory Design worked with IQAir to create a hospital room that makes the person receiving care the most important part of the experience.
IQAir contributed its technology to help build this foundation to help make care a more humane experience for both doctors and patients.
Design of the new patient-centered room
Every detail in the design of the hospital patient-centered room is intended to help provide the highest care.
Space for friends and family
The family should also feel cared for as they spend a long time with their loved ones in a place that could sometimes feel cold and unwelcoming.2
So the hospital designed resting areas and space for both the person receiving care and their family members, including sufficient space for a wheelchair.
Protecting those most vulnerable from air pollution and hospital-acquired infections (HAIs)
Patients are vulnerable to both air pollution and healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Air pollution can make infections worse, and these issues can also affect families and visitors.3,4,5
The IQAir GC™ MultiGasis intended to address both air pollution and HAIs.
This high-performance air purifier removes chemical odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as 99.5% of airborne bacteria, allergens, and particulate matter.
This helps reduce air pollution that triggers infections and inflammation, helping prevent secondary infections that can occur in hospitals.
IQAir also provides the AirVisual Pro air quality monitor to make sure that families and doctors can monitor the room’s air quality with real-time Indoor Air Quality data.
Enhancing the in-patient and family experience with crucial details
In addition to providing high quality air purification, this room’s enhanced design ensures the most delicate and detail-oriented experience both for patients and for their families:
- Mobile power supply for consistent access to electronics
- Antibacterial curtains for privacy and protection from airborne bacteria
- Red, touch-free inductive bathroom water faucets for easy visibility and prevention of bacteria transfer
- Protective outlet covers to prevent injury or shock
- High temperature restrictions on water outlets to prevent burns
