In a hospital, piping issues affect more than just day-to-day operations. Traditional repair and installation methods means that, at a minimum, affected patients will likely require relocation, impacting patient health and safety, not to mention taking a valuable room off-line.
During repairs, hospitals make patient safety paramount. If a patient’s room is near the area of repair, patients are typically moved to another space. Obviously disruptive to patients, this also can make several rooms unusable during the maintenance work.
