Anti-seismic prefabricated first aid

Prefabricated modular building, structured according to an anti-seismic patent, used as an emergency room and its diagnostic, technical, operational and temporary hospital units.

The modular first aid department is divided into one or more floors.

The emergency room can be in the same asismic building where the operating block is located on the upper floors.

In the case of several floors, each entrance communicates with the atrium served by stairs and elevators, the bed lifts communicate directly with the hospital departments.

The load-bearing structures of stairs, lifts and bed lifts are constrained to the structure of the anti-seismic first aid. Stairs, elevators and bed lifts remain functional and usable during earthquakes. The UPS guarantees the normal operation of lifts and bed lifts even when the normal supply of electricity is interrupted due to the earthquake in progress.

Environments, contiguous with the first aid department and in which temporarily suspended activities are carried out, can be quickly dedicated to the expansion and strengthening of first aid in the event of a serious emergency.

A helipad can be installed above the anti-seismic building. During earthquakes, the helicopter can take off and land normally, in absolute safety, since the earthquake does not cause relative displacements between the flying helicopter and the building.

During high-magnitude earthquakes, the emergency medical facilities remain safe and usable.

The operators present in the emergency room, during the earthquakes, can continue to rescue without danger and without fear.

The programming of the normal activities of the anti-seismic first aid, during and after earthquakes, do not require changes, if not due to the greater influx of injured people, due to the earthquake.

During and after a strong earthquake, the emergency room facilities and the human and professional resources, which flow into it and operate, remain protected and free from the effects of the earthquake.

If departments of the same hospital, adjuvants of the first aid (laboratory analysis, diagnostic activities and others), do not enjoy anti-seismic protection, some indispensable functions can be quickly activated in rooms located in the same protected building.

The hospital emergency plan can reasonably foresee substantial increases in first aid activities in full safety, during and after health emergencies and in particular those due to earthquakes.
