PRIVACY FOR BREASTFEEDING
Mothers may need to express milk, feed their child and have skin on skin contact as most Neonatal departments do not have any form of curtain a separate breastfeeding area is needed.
We can supply prints that give full or partial privacy to create a private space for breastfeeding, eliminating the need for a separate area and creating a dignified and nurturing environment.
ROBUST INFECTION CONTROL
Newborn babies can have vulnerable immune systems putting the baby at extra risk even within a special care unit,
so extra infection control measures are needed to ensure their safety.
KwickScreens with clear inner panels can be used to demarcate isolated areas so that staff and visitors know the baby is at extra risk and hygiene is improved. The clear inner panel also allows the monitoring equipment to remain visible at all times.
IMPROVED PRIVACY & DIGNITY
As well as for skin-on-skin time extra privacy may be required for administering medication, religious or cultural reasons and for sensitive end-of-life situations.
At 1.9 m high and 3 m wide the KwickScreen gives the highest level of privacy whilst being easy to manoeuvre and store when not in use. The fully customizable inners improve the patient environment creating calming and relaxing sceneries for patients and staff alike.
