Anti-seismic surgical block

Patented modular prefabricated  building, used as an operating block, consisting of at least one anti-seismic surgical room and its technical and operational ancillary appliances.

The modular surgical block can be articulated on one or more floors.

In the case of several floors, the stairs are constrained to the structure of the modular surgical block and remain usable during earthquakes.

The elevators and bed lifts, whose supporting structures are constrained to the structure of the anti-seismic operating block, remain functional and usable during earthquakes.

The UPS guarantees the normal operation of lifts and bed elevators, even when the normal supply of electricity is interrupted due to the earthquake, until the generator sets into operation.

In the same anti-seismic hospital building, on the floor or on the lower floors, there may be a ward emergency room, operationally connected with the surgical block.

A helipad can be built above the surgical center building. 

During earthquakes, the helicopter can take off and land normally in absolute safety, since there is no relative displacement, caused by the earthquake, between the flying helicopter and the building.

During seismic tremors, the kinematic normality of the moving elements present in the anti-seismic surgical room, including surgeons and operands, allows for the safe continuation of the surgical operations in progress, until their normal completion.

The modular anti-seismic surgical room, during high magnitude earthquakes, remains safe and usable.

The surgeons present in the prefabricated surgical block, during the earthquakes, can continue to operate without fear.

The operands enter the operating room knowing that in the event of an earthquake the surgery will not be interrupted and will not be in any danger.

The operational programming of prefabricated anti-seismic operating theaters, during and after seismic tremors, does not require changes, if not due to the fact that urgent surgical interventions may be necessary due to the earthquake in place.

During and after a strong earthquake, the human and professional resources that flow and work in the surgical block are absolutely preserved and protected.

The hospital emergency plan can reasonably schedule significant increases in surgical activity, in complete safety, during and immediately after a major earthquake.
