Patients Curtains

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

As we have noted many times on our site patient care includes noiseproofing their environment. In many ICU wards and emergency rooms however patients are divided by not more than a curtain. A drapery owner as come up with an interesting idea by utilizing the thin half pound mass loaded vinyl which is only a 1/16 of an inch thick, they managed to sew it together with their drapery fabric for a pretty decent sound barrier curtain. We don’t expect full sound control in such settings however it is a big help in giving patients and nurses a semblance of privacy and quiet.
