St. Margaret's Hospital Adds U-WAV™ in Surgical Suite to Reduce Germs
Recently, St. Margaret’s built a brand-new surgical suite consisting of three major surgery rooms and two cystoscopy rooms. In this suite, surgical patients benefit from the latest technology including the C-Arm, Fiber- Optic Scope and Computerized Anesthesia Units. This enclosed suite was also designed to be a highly sterile environment – so the doctors, administrators and facility managers at St. Margaret’s wanted to find an automatic door solution that would keep incoming germs to a minimum.
Greg Rowley, a veteran Service Technician who works at Advanced Door Control Inc., has installed and serviced most of the automatic doors at St. Margaret’s. After testing a product sample from Larco and comparing it to a few competitors, Greg ordered and installed the U-WAV touchless sensor to activate the main access doors to this surgical area.
Greg says, “In a sterilized surgery area, doctors don’t want to touch anything they don’t have to.” In addition to great performance, Greg says the U-WAV “looks great” in the state-of-the-art facility, with a low-profile and sleek design that blends into its surroundings.
