In their latest Press Release, VISTAMATIC Vision Panels are considered a healing component for patients while providing observation control for medical staff personnel.When Parkland Health & Hospital System staff first put pencil to paper to design its new hospital, a primary focus was to provide a state-of-the-art healing environment in which patient privacy was paramount.From incorporating an on-stage, off-stage design to reduced foot traffic and noise in patient care areas to innovative whisper-quiet vision panels in patient rooms, when it opens in 2015 the new Parkland will be a showcase for the industry’s best practices.
In terms of patient safety, the vision panels can be single- or dual-operated, meaning that the control for observation or privacy can be operated from the staff’s side only (single operation), or from both the staff and patient’s side (dual operation). In situations where observation must be controlled only by staff, restricting access is crucial for patient safety.
“In terms of staff safety, being able to control observation into a patient’s room is vital; however, infection control plays a crucial role,” Lou Saksen, Parkland’s Senior Vice President of New Parkland Construction, said.
The Official Press Release is now available on the New Parkland Hospital’s official website under News and Updates.
