New Improvements and Upgrades Enhance Patient Experience at Mark Twain Medical Center
Posted by: thepinetree on 12/01/2016 11:44 AM
San Andreas, CA...December 1, 2016- Mark Twain Medical Center (MTMC) adds a special glow to the recent lighting upgrade in its surgery suites with a $300,000-plus cost savings to the completed project. “This project creates a more comfortable environment for our patients and our surgeons,” says Certified Surgical Services Management Director Lynn Bartel, RN, BSN. She explains, “An operating room usually seems very cool to patients because it must be no more than 68 degrees to keep things sterile. But once the overhead lights go on, surgeons are working in 80 to 90 degrees at the site of the surgery due to the heat from the bright lights. That can quickly increase to 100-plus degrees depending upon what surgery-specific garments are required.”
