Flooring for Operating and Surgical Rooms

The spread of infection in a healthcare facility can take its toll not only on patients and staff, but have tremendous consequences on a facility’s bottom line. Medical experts report that preventable healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) affect a growing number of hospitalized patients in the U.S. annually.

While a focus on sanitary conditions is crucial in any area of any type of healthcare facility, nowhere is it more important to maintain a sterile environment than in an operating room or a surgical area. By helping inhibiting the growth of bacteria and other pathogens, the proper flooring can be a key contributor to maintaining the high level of hygiene that will keep both your staff and patients safe and, potentially, reduce the risk of costly litigation.
