You need to take a lot of factors into account when it comes to hospital flooring options; you need to promote a sterile and hygienic environment, ensure that the floor isn’t too slippery and it can sustain high foot traffic, just to name a few.

The right flooring option makes it easy for hospital workers to do their job better and ensures patient safety.

Some areas in hospitals need to offer extra walking support to differently-abled people, while others need to facilitate rolling beds and wheelchairs.

Here are the best hospital flooring options for each area:

The Entrance Area

The entrance needs to be fit for walking for all kinds of people, as it’s the first area visitors—as well as doctors who are in a rush—have to pass through. This includes sick patients and their families.

The flooring here also needs to be durable enough to withstand high amounts of foot traffic, so it lasts for a long period. This will prevent closures for maintenance that would otherwise inconvenience visitors. Finally, the floor should not be slippery.

The best options for this area are LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles) and terrazzo for the extra support and durability they provide, as well as the superior aesthetic.

Operation Theaters And the ER

Emergency and operation rooms can’t afford to compromise on hygiene and infection control. The floors in these areas need to be smooth, easy to clean, and not very textured to promote a healthy environment.

Floors that are easy and seamless to install are preferred in these areas to prevent the build-up of dirt, dust, and fluids. The two best flooring options for these areas are resin and laminate floors.
