It is important to consider compliance when choosing medical office cubicles. If you have ever worked in a cubicle, you know how important it is to stay on task without distractions. In addition to this, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule, makes it necessary that cubicles also maintain the medical privacy.
Concealment of sensitive, patient-specific information—identification and contact information, diagnostic imaging results, clinical history, and so on—is maintained most effectively by enclosed cubicles that conceal documents and comptuer terminals from open view.
Medical office cubicles should also be easy to clean so that microbial buildup can be prevented. Infection control, like patient privacy, is a high priority in a medical facility, and nonsocial infections—those which are acquired in hospital settings—can pose a significant risk to anyone in a healthcare facility. Hard, non-porous surfaces such as high-pressure laminates are good options for your cubicle walls and surfaces. With minimal breaks in the surface, these surfaces are easier to clean and maintain without infectious substances lingering.
Good ergonomic practice is always important for ensuring years of activity at home and at work without sustaining a lot of injury, especially exacerbated from repetitive movement and continuous strain. Medical office cubicles should be comfortable to work in but small enough that an employee can take care of their everyday tasks without constant bending, stretching, or twisting to grab paperwork. Chairs should allow your staff to adjust backrest tilt, armrest height, and seat heights for optimal support.
If your medical office cubicles are in sight of patients and visitors, keeping a visually calm and comfortable atmosphere in line with your facility’s interior design can be a smart decision. Color plays a role in the mood and mental well-being of people, and this is most crucial where ailing, worried individuals are waiting. The surfaces and walls of medical office cubicles are available in several shades that are soft and inviting. Brighter colors can be harsh and irritating, and dark colors can be somber.
Just like any other type of workstation, medical office cubicles can range in cost depending on multiple factors. These include type of material finish, the height of the walls, and the size of your workstation. Browse through a few websites, and you can find a single, high-walled cubicle for as little as $800 and as much as $2100.
The problem with shopping online for medical office cubicles is that they are rarely tailored with your specific needs met, so you can find yourself spending a lot of money on cubicles with a less-than-optimal usage of space. This could translate to a lot of dollars wasted—and possibly a lot of space wasted as well.
