Uses for a Hospital Anteroom
There is not one correct way to use a hospital anteroom. These modular units can be used in a range of different scenarios as an infection control measure. For instance, construction projects that tend to stir up dust and debris can present a hazard to patients in a hospital. The use of a hospital anteroom, in this case, can protect patients from dangerous pathogens in that dust by providing a seal between the construction area and patient rooms.

Hospital Anterooms and Green Construction
Hospital construction has an impressive impact on the community where it takes place. Not only does a new or renovated facility mean more places for community members to receive treatment and care, but the construction itself has an impact on traffic, air quality, and other important environmental factors.
This community impact has made green construction and specific classifications such as LEED certification very important in the healthcare industry. While it may not seem obvious, hospital anterooms can play a role in a facility that is cleaner and greener than it might otherwise be.

While there are certainly different anteroom manufacturers and brands, we want to get specific about the HEPACART™ AnteRoom and what makes it different from other options. For instance, the idea for our AnteRoom was born out of a need for affordable patient isolation options in a Kansas VA hospital. It turned out the custom product HEPACART™ created for this purpose had wide-reaching appeal, and a new product line was born.
