Maasbracht medical practice is part of De Vlinder medical centre in Maasbracht. The facility brings the full range of medical specialists together in one place. Maasbracht medical practice provides medical care designed to contribute to the general well-being of its patients.

Coronavirus has forced everyone to make changes to their lives. Companies and institutions have had to make changes to ensure that they can continue to operate safely. Things are no different for medical practices. Medical specialists see patients on a daily basis, some of whom could be infected with coronavirus. Doctor Luijten at Maasbracht medical practice decided to take action to protect both patients and staff.

THE CHALLENGE

The moment that coronavirus arrived in the Netherlands, the practice decided to take decisive action. Patients who were suspected of having coronavirus were not permitted to enter the practice ‘normally’ but were received in a separate ‘clean room’. Staff who had symptoms of coronavirus or lived with someone with symptoms were told to work from home – no ifs, not buts. Doctor Luijten: ‘We started by fitting screens throughout the practice. Our air-conditioning provider drew out attention to air cleaners. I have read a lot of literature over the past year, and I am now convinced that ventilation – to prevent the spread of aerosols – is an important component in stopping the spread of the virus. We want to do everything we can to d symptoms of coronavirus or lived with someone with symptoms were told to work from home – no ifs, not buts.

Doctor Luijten: We started by fitting screens throughout the practice. Our air-conditioning provider drew out attention to air cleaners. I have read a lot of literature over the past year, and I am now convinced that ventilation – to prevent the spread of aerosols – is an important component in stopping the spread of the virus. We want to do everything we can to protect our employees and patients. That’s why I contacted Euromate, where I spoke to advisor Jos Stoop about the solutions that are available.

 

THE SOLUTION

‘Everything was clear to me as soon as I had finished speaking to Jos – decent and honest. We decided to take the plunge,’ explains Doctor Luijten. The first VisionAir Blue Line was purchased between the first and second waves of the virus.

During the second wave, the air cleaner system was expanded to include a double VisionAir Blue Line for the clean room, one for the assistants’ area and a mobile VisionAir that we can use in the consulting rooms. A further two have recently been added. Doctor Luijten: ‘The package of measures that we have put in place gives our employees and patients full confidence. We keep our distance, disinfect continuously, open the windows for extra ventilation, have a screen in every room, have a clean room where we can receive patients through a separate entrance and have air cleaners in place. All of this together has meant that there have been no coronavirus-related infections originating at our practice. Our patients ask us what the devices are for and always respond enthusiastically when they see the commitment we have made. The air cleaners create fresh indoor air and I myself have had far fewer upper respiratory problems since they’ve been in place.’

De Vlinder medical centre, where the medical practice is located, has also had air cleaners installed in the communal area. ‘The agreements were met, installation was smooth and straightforward. The additional mobile VisionAir Blue was delivered within a week of ordering. We are extremely satisfied!’ concludes Doctor Luijten.

 

“We’re really happy with Euromate and the air cleaners.”

“A pleasant, safe feeling and nice indoor air inside the practice!’ ”

That way, no valuable heated or cooled air is lost.

The modern design of the VisionAir Blue Line fits well in every interior. Moreover, the air cleaner produces little noise and is very user friendly in operation. To spread an extra fresh scent throughout the room, the air cleaners can be equipped with FreeBreeze scent cartridges.
