One of the questions we get asked during a mobile mri delivery is how do we keep our patients comfotable in adverse weather conditions during the short walk out to the unit? Some customers will use a heated blanket and an umbrella but more recently we have installed a mobile mri awning for the extreme weather conditions. Awnings can be as complex or as simple as needed based on your mobile system.
Reasons Why to Build an Awning
- Weather Conditions
- State Regulations
- Fire Suppression
- Emergency Needs
- Hospital Regulations
Mobile MRI Awning Must Haves
Having an awning can be a great add on during your lease or rental. Although, when you put in an awning, you want to make sure you have adequate lighting, cooling and/or heating. Whether you are completely or partly enclosed, you want your staff and patients to feel safe. If you build an awning and forget to add lighting, it can create very dark holes and unsafe spots for your staff and patients. Your awning will also need a way to cool or heat it depending on conditions. These are a few of the major must haves when you add an awning to your lease.
