Burn Unit

Burn Unit

St. John’s is one of the few hospitals in the area that has a burn unit. They have recently decided to separate their services into an In-Patient Unit and an Out-Patient Areas. One of the biggest challenges for this type of department is infection Control, so finishes were selected so that infections would be a minimal risk; welded seamed floors, foot pedal to operate sinks, laminate mill-work and no vinyl wall covering—only paint was used.


Infection Control during construction and appropriate finishes to maintain easy infection control after construction.


We developed an Infection Control standard to be used on this project. It was followed and there were no problems.
