Floor Increases Safety at Orthopedic Surgi-Center


The Orthopedic Surgery Center of Idaho operates as one of the surgi-centers for the Boise State University Athletics program, specializing in sports medicine.

During initial construction of this facility, the concrete slab was poured unevenly. Subsequently, once the floors were installed, they also sloped unevenly. This caused surgical carts to roll across the floor during surgery and wheelchairs to roll away from patients even before they could position themselves in the seats! Focused on the safety of the hospital staff and patients, administrators agreed a solution was critical. However, the pending renovations and their impact to the facility required immediate evaluation. A cure for these floors had to be as non-invasive as possible!

The Center’s administrators agreed Dur-A-Flex's Cryl-A-Chip SL system would meet the strict criteria because it could be installed quickly, easily meeting the two-week project timeline. Dur-A-Flex’s floor system was selected for its superior performance and simple maintenance, giving the Center a knee up on durability and reduced costs. Most importantly, the administrators are equally pleased with the increased safety the new floor has provided for caregivers and patients!
