STOKE MANDEVILLE HOSPITAL CASE STUDY
Architectural Wallsz were engaged by Sodexo to supply and install a negative pressure segregation pod with a positive pressure lobby in the day surgery unit (DSU) at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
The impact of Covid-19 has brought about changes to hospital infrastructure across the world. In these unprecedented times, the importance of protecting patient and staff wellbeing runs parallel with the need for maintaining the maximum amount of bed space to manage the influx of patient admissions.
Stoke Mandeville Hospital was looking for a single pod that could be quickly installed in a multi-occupancy bay to isolate one patient from the rest to avoid the spread of infection. Architectural Wallsz were able to provide a quick and effective solution by installing a negative pressure segregation pod for vulnerable or potentially infectious patients, protecting them and those around them while maintaining space for numerous other beds in the DSU bay.
