Infection control enclosure for a safer patient environment
The Bioquell ICE-pod has been developed to help healthcare workers’ control outbreaks and manage patients who are known or suspected to be infected or colonised with a pathogen. Tailored to an individual bed space, each enclosure maximises the patient care area whilst taking into account gantries, trunking and other ward-specific services. It is a temporary structure that can be erected rapidly and, by providing additional single occupancy areas, it helps to increase the flexibility of the hospital.
The design, materials and lighting of the Bioquell ICE-pod have been specified to give a modern look whilst creating a pleasant environment for patients. Each enclosure has large, transparent windows to offer visibility for staff and patients, with opaque lower level panels to reinforce the sense of a private patient room. To enable full privacy, the Bioquell ICE-pod also incorporates curtain rails specified to fit standard hospital curtains. Alcohol hand rub, gloves and gowning materials are mounted on the front fascia, helping to facilitate good hand hygiene and infection control practices. To provide air circulation, a roof-mounted air handling unit is provided. It can be used in conjunction with the Bioquell ICE-pod’s bi-folding doors to provide an environment that helps to limit the egress of potentially contaminated air when housing infected patients. The Bioquell ICE-pod has also been designed with a rapidly deployable gas-tight seal. This permits high-level bio-decontamination using HPV technology to be performed safely in under one hour. Options Bioquell ICE-pods are tailor-made to maximise the internal space and incorporate all patient services, such as oxygen, power and television systems. As such they are built around existing bed space. Each enclosure can be provided without doors and/or the air handling unit on request. Bioquell HPV high-level bio-decontamination Bioquell ICE-pods are compatible with advanced Bioquell HPV equipment to enable full elimination of pathogens in under 1 hour. This technology has been proven to help bring outbreaks under control and reduce endemic infection rates.
The Bioquell ICE-pod system offers a more flexible, lower cost alternative to permanent compartmentalisation of wards and, in certain situations, can be used as additional single
