PVC Wall Cladding Can Reduce Hospital Compensation Claims

31 May 2019

Making walls and ceilings safer with PVC wall cladding has never been so important. Human contact with surfaces in hospitals, dental practices and other health facilities can spread serious infections. If a patient or someone with a lowered immune system touches a wall that has not been thoroughly cleaned, they can be more susceptible to infection. That is why a vigorous approach to hygiene is essential, especially in high traffic or treatment areas.


Legal firms in the UK are currently encouraging those infected with MRSA to file compensation claims. They are promising ‘maximum compensation’ and offer free advice. Claims can include general damages, medical expenses (including travel costs), loss of earnings and care expenditure. So, healthcare providers need to consider the knock-on costs of poor hygiene as well as the impact on individuals’ lives. While wider use of alcohol gels in hospitals should be encouraged, better use of easy-to-clean surfaces is just as important.


Better hygiene with PVC wall cladding


Greater awareness about no-win no-fee legal claims is encouraging more people to make claims again the NHS and other care providers. MRSA, a bacterial infection that can be resistant to commonly used antibiotics, is one area hospitals can tackle more confidently with robust sanitation. By targeting surfaces service users are most likely to come into contact with, risks can be significantly reduced.


PVC wall cladding is ideal for hospital waiting areas, corridors, wards, and operating theatres. That is because it is undemanding to clean. A sleek finish means deep cleaning is effortless. With good protocols, intensive cleaning and sanitisation can be carried out quickly and not interfere with the safe running of a facility.
