Clinic Doors Create a Comforting Space
As professional architects take on more and more medical facility projects, it’s common to find that the leading interest, when it comes to design, is providing patients with exceptional and efficient care. This has lead to fresh approaches when it comes to the creation of buildings and focuses largely on not just the dimensions and layout, but the interior applications as well. One of the most critical aspects of a building that serves the healthcare industry is the clinic doors found within. Doors actually have quite an effect on how comfortable a patient feels in a medical environment. This is why AD Systems has made it their mission to supply architects with the doors they need to create a warm, reassuring atmosphere. Good clinic doors will have all the characteristics mentioned below to assist healthcare providers in achieving their goals of delivering first-rate patient care.
Provide a Confidential Environment
Hospital stays and visits to the doctor often find patients at their most vulnerable. Clinic doors have a big hand in helping to ensure they are able to feel as relaxed as possible in these moments. AD Systems offers sliding doors with a high level of acoustic performance that is vital to patient privacy and is also in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that regulates the confidential interaction between healthcare providers and their patients. With acoustically-sealed clinic doors, patients don’t have to be concerned about their personal medical information being leaked to everyone within earshot. Of course, this also provides the side-benefit of eliminating noise from outside the treatment rooms, thereby providing the patient with a tranquil atmosphere during treatment or confidential discussions.
Support a Shorter Recovery Time
The layout and design of doctor offices, outpatient clinics, and hospitals make a significant impact on how comfortable a patient feels, in turn, contributing greatly to their recovery time. That means clinic doors should no longer be seen as just a means of entry and exit, but also part of a patient’s recovery plan. There is generally a lot going on in healthcare facilities at all times with quite a bit of background noise coming from the staff, medical equipment, and other patients. This is shown to influence a patient’s ability to sleep, their stress levels, their blood pressure, and their heart and respiratory rates. Reducing the noise level should be an architect’s number one priority when sketching out possible systems for clinic doors.
Present an Easy Solution For Restroom Use
Normal, everyday tasks, like using the restroom, can become challenging when a patient isn’t feeling well or is in the process of recovering from a medical procedure. In an effort to make things easier on their patients, as well as ensure that they are in compliance with the American Disabilities Act (ADA), medical facilities count on their architects to come up with solutions that will help eliminate difficulties when using the restroom. One of the simplest resolutions is to get rid of conventional swinging doors from design plans and replace them with sliding clinic doors from AD Systems. The configuration of these clinic doors allows wheelchairs, crutches, and other assistive equipment to move in and out of a restroom with ease.
The right clinic doors are easy to design when an architect is working with AD Systems. Many sliding door options are available to suit a wide variety of style preferences and technical requirements.
