Prefabricated anti-seismic hospital

Prefab modular hospital building, second anti seismic patent.

The modules of the anti-seismic hospital buildings are produced in the factory, transported on normal articulated lorries and assembled on site.

During and after strong earthquakes in hospitals, difficulties, urgencies and expectations emerge perhaps more than in any other place.

It is advisable to plan the management of hospital emergencies, caused by seismic or other disasters, in order to be able to face, more generally, the emergencies that occur in a territory.

In order to plan and deal with seismic emergencies in hospitals, there are two essential points: the sites and the operating hospital structures must be safe and accessible to the point that in hospitals everyone perceives safety and protection and also that all hospital activities actually and concretely can continue normally during earthquakes.

Surgical operations, with all evidence, are the activities that present greater risks and difficulties during earthquakes.

The hospital asismic must be the place where the surgical activity continues normally in safety, for surgeons and operands, while seismic tremors shake the ground.

The current anti-seismic buildings resist earthquake tremors, if they are not very violent, but they oscillate even more than the ground and in these conditions surgical operations are impossible, due to the dynamics that objects, equipment and people in the operating room undergo. 

There is another cause of difficulty for the surgical interventions in place during the earthquake, it is panic.

The patented anti-seismic hospital building earthquake-proof hospital building resists seismic tremors of high magnitude and in it all hospital activities can be carried out during seismic tremors, including the most delicate ones such as surgery.

Those present in the hospital, if they feel safety and security, avoid panic and confusion.

The stairs, whose structure is integrated into the building structure, remain accessible during the earthquake.

The elevators, the structure of which is integrated into the structure of the earthquake-proof hospital building, remain functional during earthquakes. If the normal supply of electricity is suspended due to the earthquake, the UPS will supply electricity until the emergency electric generator is activated.
