How To Choose Hospital Curtains
Sharing is caring!
Hospital curtains are important for so many reasons, they offer privacy to patients during critical times, such as during medical procedures or times such as feeding babies, or even for being closed off for receiving bad news. They can protect others from seeing things they may not want to, they can even help to prevent the further spread of diseases. Hospital curtains are easy to clean and, crucially disposable, ensuring that diseases aren’t spread when new patients are brought into the wards.
Hospital curtains also mean that a lot more patients can be fitted into one room than would otherwise have been possible, as they can effectively turn one large room into what are essentially several smaller, easily usable rooms
They are available in different colours, with different drop lengths and different hook types. Different colour curtains can be used throughout your medical facility, whether it’s a hospital, a care home, or anything else, to denote different wards or sorts of care.
Blue curtains are regularly used around hospitals, but if you’re in a ward for a particularly long time it can be nice to see a different colour so that you’re not constantly reminded you’re in a hospital. You could choose from several colours, including cream, lilac, and even just different shades of blue.
Different drop lengths and hook types are great for replacing older curtains with different types of curtain rails and in different height rooms.
Is disposing of hospital curtains wasteful?
Disposable hospital curtains are made of non-woven spun-bond polypropylene, which is fully recyclable, the hooks and tie-backs are made of injection-moulded polypropylene, and even the labels are made of a polypropylene laminate, so everything is recyclable. Being a plastic-based material also means when the curtains don’t need replacing, they are easy to wipe down and clean.
