CCCT A575-577 Pass-Through
A renovation of rooms A575 and A577 allowed the implementation of a revised scope cleaning process for the Endoscopy Department. The devices being cleaned in this area are nasal-pharyngeal scopes. The project installed a pass-through window between the two rooms.
Room A575 consisted of the removal of the existing sink & eyewash, nurse call, and telephone. A new 3-bowl stainless steel sink, stainless steel shelf, and hand-held hose type emergency eyewash were installed.
Room A577 consisted of the removal of a sink on the north wall and relocating a base cabinet from the west wall to the north wall. Water and electrical services were provided for a new scope-cleaning machine (Medivators Advantage Plus) on the west wall. Supply and exhaust airflows were rebalanced in both rooms to maintain negative pressure in Room A575 with respect to surrounding rooms, and to maintain positive pressure in Room A577 with respect to surrounding rooms.
The HVAC changes were made in compliance with the 2014 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospital and Outpatient Facilities, AAMI ST79, and AAMI ST58.
Emergency power was provided for the Medivators Advantage Plus Endoscope Reprocessing System and other supplemental sterilizers.
Doan Hall B088, B130C, 025M The Ohio State University conducted a renovation of Doan Hall at the OSU Medical Center. The project scope provided for the treatment of water entering the building.
This project consisted of the procurement and installation of two (2) electrochemical type Chlorine Dioxide Generators to treat the domestic hot water systems serving Doan Hall. The generators connect to existing domestic hot water and hot water return piping located in the vicinity of the existing hot water generators in rooms 0021M and W194M. Scope of work included the installation of electrical and plumbing connection points for installation of chlorine dioxide generators, installation of Reduced Pressure Principle (RP) backflow prevention devices on existing incoming domestic hot and cold water services located in Rooms 0088 and X55C, and the installation of master thermostatic mixing valve station in Room 0021M.
Doan Hall Labor & Delivery In order to house the expanded labor and delivery unit, this project consisted of completing a 20,000 sq. ft. shelled-in space and renovating 10,000 sq. ft. of existing hospital space. Special attention was given to the design of the labor and delivery rooms to make the birth experience more pleasant for women and their families. We did this while accommodating the leading-edge technology available at The OSU Medical Center.
Hotel-like in appearance with maple walls and flooring, each room provides a private bath, entertainment center and additional amenities to enhance the hospital stay. Curved gypsum board and cove lighting are combined to reinforce the non-institutional look and feel of the rooms. Each patient room is sized to accommodate the specialized equipment, gases and other items that could be needed during the birth process. Any room can be immediately converted to handle an emergency procedure, if necessary. Staff efficiency and patient care were important factors in developing the design of the Doan Hall Maternity Center. Caregiver stations are located between each patient room, allowing staff to be more mobile and patient-focused.
