According to her, the biggest change came from the decision to use electrically controlled positioning beds, which required the expansion and strengthening of the electrical installation. In addition, the circuits that ensure the operation of medical devices are backed up. A total of 40 beds are also equipped with oxygen cylinders.

151 cubicles for 302 beds

The backup hospital has 151 cubicles for 302 beds. These are separated by a fixed partition, which should ensure higher visual and noise comfort. A color differentiation into three sectors should help the orientation in sorting of the patients according to medical parameters. The existing social facilities in the hall will be fully utilized. Newly, the premises will be equipped with shower containers. And container toilets will also be accessible from the interior.
