Nebraska Medical Center maintains its stellar reputation and high standards with nora® rubber flooring.
Nebraska Medical Center is a 624-bed acute care facility highly regarded for innovation and quality patient care. The Omaha-based facility also serves as a teaching hospital for more than 1,000 students. Comprised of several buildings, the medical center saw a need to set standards for quality and consistency throughout the campus. The need for consistent standards carried through to the renovation of the hospital’s adult ICU.
With an eye toward durability, comfort and maintenance benefits, facility planners considered nora rubber flooring for the new ICU. A test installation in other key high-traffic areas reassured planners nora® would meet hospital requirements. Officials opted to use a combination of noraplan environcare™ and norament® strada as part of the ICU’s distinctive design plan.
It didn’t take long for hospital employees to develop an appreciation for the new flooring. “Our staff really appreciates the cushioning the floors offer,” says Pat Wieczorek, facilities senior project leader for Nebraska Medical Center. Enhanced cushioning underfoot keeps caregivers energized and comfortable as they tend to patient needs. For the maintenance staff, rubber flooring’s no-wax surface results in less labor and fewer costs associated with the upkeep and cleaning regimen.
The durability of noraplan environcare™ and norament® strada allows the flooring to withstand the constant traffic of staff, patients and visitors without compromising the ICU’s design scheme and the medical center’s high standards for quality.
