Suspended Ceiling Repair

Case Study: 18075

Value
£5,000

Location
ITU (Intensive Treatment Unit), Wexham Park Hospital

Contract Length
5 days

Types of Work Involved:

Emergency suspended ceiling remedial works

The Task:

Repair of partially collapsed suspended ceiling. The Trust commissioned us to find a solution to this emergency remedial works so we could programme and control the works in order for the ITU ward to carry on with its duty of care to their patients. The building task here was straightforward, but the control and preparation was the key to a successful job and a satisfied client.

The Problem:

ITU is a unit for the chronically sick and therefore cannot be closed to carry out the works. It contains very sensitive equipment that cannot be exposed to dust and vibration. The ceiling was in danger of collapse so there was genuine risk to safety of patients, staff and visitors.

The Solution:

After consultations with the Matron, it was decided to move one patient immediately and a plan of works was compiled.

The work had to be carried out promptly so as not to affect the wards capability to serve any incoming sick patients, so getting the ward back up to full capacity was paramount.

Once the plan was agreed, after consultations with the IPC (Infection Prevention Control) team, the Trust’s Estates director and the ward Matron, work commenced immediately.

Firstly, the area was cordoned off with clean hazard barriers that were cleaned prior to placement in the ward with Klericide 70/30 ethanol solution.

10no. 3m x 1200mm screens were assembled and covered in Safelex and screwed together in the ward. Then we used lighter grade polythene from the top of the screens to the top of the vaulted ceilings. All edges were taped with gaffer tape to seal. A change area was constructed to enable safe ingress and egress into the working area. Tack mats were positioned as an added control measure.

All these control/ enabling works were carried out methodically and quietly for minimum disturbance reasons.

Before the remedial works were carried out we contacted the IPC team to inspect and for their approval. The IPC team took some photos of our control measures to show other contractors how they would like all works to be carried out within live wards.

The ceiling was then carefully disassembled and then rebuilt with additional hangers to prevent any further occurrences.

After client and end user inspection. The hospital deep cleaned the working area. We then disassembled the screening in a controlled manner and the bed spaces were then handed back to the ward.
