  1. A new barrier-free burn center.

    Article - En anglais

    This article describes a barrier-free burn center that is accessible to persons with disabilities and that complies with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    The burn center has 3 separate components : patient rooms, patient support facilities, and staff support facilities.

    Thirteen rooms are used to care for 16 patients.

    Two of the 13 rooms are accessible to people with disabilities.

    These 2 rooms have wide doors that permit a wheelchair to pass through, and they have enough dear floor space for a wheelchair to make a 180° turn.

    The rooms have a sink that is accessible from a wheelchair.

    The bathrooms have large, clear floor spaces that allow for the turning of a wheelchair, elevated toilets, grab bars, and showers that permit wheelchair access.

    Special wheelchairs that provide easier shower and commode access are available.

    The patient support services feature a large hydrotherapy room that contains a table-shower system that allows a person in a wheelchair to gain access to both sides of the shower table.

    A tub room has been constructed to provide compact patient bathing and hydromassage, and it is also accessible to people in wheelchairs.

    The staff support services include a locker room that has a shower accessible to people with disabilities so that staff members with mobility disorders can work in the burn center. (...)
