MIG delivers children’s ward refurbishment for Royal Lancaster Infirmary
Royal Lancaster Infirmary offers a range of services ranging from a full accident and emergency department to critical care and consultant-led beds.
In order to ensure the hospital adheres to the latest practices and technology, it brought in MIG to help refurbish its children’s ward.
MIG was also tasked with changing the use of three single rooms into three High Dependency Unit dual circuit rooms, which meant installing and testing medical gas pipelines capable of meeting the additional demand.
Working in live hospital areas throughout the phased project, the engineers had to take extreme care to ensure the safety of some of its most vulnerable young patients.
This required not just careful coordination of the work, but also safeguarding measures to ensure no debris from the installation could contaminate the children’s ward.
Working to tight timescales and strict health and safety regulations, MIG installed medical gas, bed locators, static bed head units, nurse call and hand and crash rails.
“We have a good relationship with the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, who have relied on us for several projects in the past,” says MIG director Carl Mitten.
“We understand the care required when working within a live hospital environment and I’m pleased to say that the refurbishment went extremely well.”
