Fifty percent of all surgeries require the use of a fluoroscope which produces radiation. All our surgeons, nurses and patients already wear special suits for their protection, but we make sure that our walls are also lined with lead to prevent radiation from leaking out of the operating rooms.
Positive Pressure Rooms
The air pressure inside every operating room must be higher than the pressure outside. Positive pressure rooms push germs out of the operating rooms, and keep them outside every time the door closes or opens.
The patient remains our number one priority
“Clean zone” standards are met in every room. These standards are 100,000 particles per cubic foot for the catheterization laboratory (Cath Lab), 10,000 particles per cubic foot for every operating room, and 1,000 particles per cubic foot for the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Laboratory.
Meticulous Floor Plan
Rooms are positioned in relation to each other according to the needs of our surgeons, who were involved in designing the floor plan from the beginning. There is no need for patients to be transferred to other buildings or outside the critical care complex area. The close proximity of each room enhances patient safety and reduces the chance of complications which can occur during transportation.
As an example, the Cath Lab connects with the cardiovascular thoracic operating room. Also, with the obstetrics and gynecology (Ob-gyn) room and the ART Laboratory connected, eggs can be picked up from the Ob-gyn operating room then immediately fertilized in the lab. There is a higher chance of producing a healthier embryo when the egg and sperm spend a shorter amount of time in transport. The two rooms are also connected to the natural birth room, and in case of complications a patient can have a c-section as quickly as possible.
