Operating Room 1 at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital has recently been renovated to include an improved nurse’s and doctor station that will help provide better care, officials said.
“The Hospital’s OR now includes a revised nurse’s and doctor’s station that provides physicians and staff better control of the environment of care, from the lighting in the room to playing music for the patient undergoing a procedure,” said Tim LeBouthillier, director of Community Relations & Development at the hospital, in a release.
LeBouthillier also noted that a series of lighting booms installed in the operating room would allow doctors access to video monitors, additional lighting, anesthesiology and other medical equipment.
”Ensuring that our facility has the latest designs and technology is key to ensuring the best possible care for those that need surgery at CHH,” said John Capobianco, vice president of administration.
The work was done this past fall by O&G Industries. O&G’s role included “demolition, framing, drywall and taping, ceiling modifications and the installation of millwork and finishes,” according to a release.
“O&G maintained a ‘clean, quiet and safe’ work environment with the construction of temporary walls to isolate the construction zone and control dust; the use of negative air pressure to confine airborne matter; and sealed buggies to transport debris and materials through the hospital as needed,” wrote O&G representatives in the release. “HEPA-vacuums were also utilized by workers and on equipment exiting the construction zone.”
According to LeBouthillier, the operating room is now “in full operation.”
