Making a good impression

December 01, 2000 |

When the terrazzo floors of the operating rooms at Loma Linda (Calif.) University Medical Center needed to be replaced, the safety of patients and staff alike became a crucial factor. The director of engineering services, Leo Rein, had to search for flooring that was slip-resistant, hygienic and easy to maintain.

After Rein's team weighed its options, it chose to install Altro Impressionist 25 flooring in one of the operating rooms. The product's integral bacteriostat-a treatment that helps inhibit the growth of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria-and slip resistance were the determining factors. The team will be installing it in four other operating suites and their surrounding hallways.
