What the new Charlotte Orthopedic Hospital tower means for you


Jack Brayboy: This place is brand new and
it feels that way too, doesn’t it? How excited are you guys to have the chance
to show off what you’ve got and take another step toward better patient care? Jason Bernd: We’re incredibly excited about
this new facility. As we look at what we’ve been doing in our
current facilities for 41 years our team has been providing remarkable care. What we think about is now we’re bringing
the facilities up to that standard. That high world class standard our team has already
been delivering so we’re super excited about this. We really think about putting the patient
at the center when we look at our design. Whether it is in the big picture such as the
fact that our pre-op surgical areas are on the first floor, our ORs and surgical areas are on the
second floor and our patient rooms are on the third floor. Whether it is in small details such as the fact
that our door hardware has antimicrobial properties in it to keep patients safe, our paint has
antimicrobial in it. If you look at things like our bathroom thresholds
there is no threshold to step over which keeps patients safe and keeps them from trip hazards. Michele Gobble: What I like about this new
facility– well there are so many things. First and foremost we’ve been able to craft
care plans that are individualized for our patients. We really have the ability to do that so much
better at this facility. In every room we have new technology that
really enhances the care that we provide. We’ve done a really nice job of incorporating
safety measures in our patient rooms so that alarms sound when a patient may mobilize without
assistance and we don’t like that– we want to be there to help them. We want to make sure they stay safe so we
have technology in our beds, in our chairs that help us make sure that patients stay
safe and that we understand what that patient is doing almost every minute of the day.
