Case Study: Doncaster Royal Infirmary
A selection of Polysafe flooring products have been chosen for the recently refurbished Stirling Ward at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
April 2014 saw the opening of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals’ newest ward which has been specifically designed to meet the needs of older patients who are frail and severely unwell. The Stirling Ward assesses and provides timely and holistic care to patients to help them live better with frailty and continue their lives.
To uplift the interior environment, over 700m˛ of Polysafe Hydro Evolve in the Amazon shade and Polysafe Modena PUR in Gypsum was installed throughout circulation areas, WC areas and bedrooms by Unlimited Flooring of Stocksbridge. The flooring chosen was used to enhance the design of the clutter-free and bright dementia-friendly environment, whilst also providing the required sustainable slip-resistance for patients and staff at all times.
Steve Brunyee of the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust comments, “The appearance and underfoot safety of the flooring was of paramount importance for the specified combination of decorative flooring in the new ward at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Polysafe Hydro Evolve and Polysafe Modena PUR have provided the required design, safety and durability for this specialist dementia-friendly environment.”
