Included will support areas such as dining/activity, quiet activity, common shower, seclusion room, nurse workstation, private office, report/break room, laundry, clean and soiled utility.
Major interior demolition is required to repurpose the space vacated by pediatrics. Common areas will have acoustical lay in tile. All doors will be replaced and hardware will be anti-ligature type. Departmental perimeter doors shall be electronically monitored and locked per the LSC and local AHJ Codes. Doors to patient rooms and patient toilets will be equipped with weight sensitive sensors at the top of the doors.
