Project Description: 

The project scope had 2 components:

  1. Reconfigure and enclose the existing security desk near the main entrance to allow staff to greet patients and visitors to the facility from a secure station. The design includes 2 stations.

  2. Renovate a portion of the Nurse Station to create 2 ‘triage bays’, where staff can interview patients in a thorough manner prior to admitting them to an inpatient unit or an observation suite. The solution includes new monitors at the bays, and recently added breakaway bi-fold aluminum storefront doors give privacy to the patient, while allowing staff to be observed in case of unexpected action.
