Designing and planning a sluice room in a hospital according to NHS standards and ISO guidelines is crucial for patient care and infection control. Properly designed sluice rooms ensure efficient waste management, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and nosocomial infections. Moreover, adhering to sustainability principles, hospitals can promote eco-friendly practices by employing reusable bedpans and urinals. This not only reduces healthcare waste but also lowers costs in the long run. In summary, well-designed sluice rooms not only meet regulatory standards but also contribute to patient safety, hygiene, and sustainable healthcare practices.
