Patient care is about well-being and safety

Silentia patient care is about well-being and safety

High quality patient care is important. Patients at hospitals are often in uncomfortable and vulnerable situations, and the privacy screens should meet their needs. Patients with a good well-being during their hospital visits are likely to recover quicker. So, a safe, comfortable, and hygienic environment around the patient is extremely important. It contributes to a more positive patient recovery experience.

Silentia’s folding screen system has the unique ability to be cleaned instantly without being moved or requiring additional labor. Patients who need calm and no disturbances will benefit from tall screens that go all around the bed. Patients in an open ward need screens to divide between beds, and with a height that lets the staff see the patient when passing.

Patient care is also to reduce the spread of infection

Several studies show that privacy curtains between patients carry large numbers of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. When staff touch the privacy curtains or disposable curtains, they risk transferring these bacteria to staff and other patients. Even if the medical screens curtains are washed or changed regularly, it does not help a great deal as they quickly become contaminated with infectious bacteria again.
