  2. How Medical Screening Tents Provide Reliable Spaces for Screening Patients

    How Medical Screening Tents Provide Reliable Spaces for Screening Patients

    When the threat of infectious diseases grows, hospitals and medical centers may require additional spaces for patients, doctors and nurses. Medical tents and medical screening tents are convenient solutions for patient testing, storing medical equipment, and setting up emergency screening spaces. Fabric buildings and portable tents are in high demand when there’s an epidemic or pandemic, such as the flu or COVID-19. When the need arises, these structures can be quickly assembled and easily anchored to a variety of outdoor spaces. ShelterLogic manufactures various fabric buildings and portable tents that can be used for screening purposes. Many of those could be used in the medical field as a medical screening tent, containment tent, surge tent, and triage tent.

    How Can a Temporary Building be Used as a Medical Tent?

    Hospitals and medical centers could use temporary buildings as medical tents outside hospitals or other public spaces for a variety of reasons, including:
    • Check-in Areas: Enclosed tents and fabric buildings can be used as check-in areas for emergency room patients before they enter the main medical building. Once an initial screening takes place, medical personnel can determine the next steps for patients.
    • Overflow Waiting Room Space: In case there is a rush of patients, surge tents could be used as overflow waiting room space. These containment tents can also help communities enforce social distancing for patients as they wait, which could assist in keeping the spread of illness down.
    • Triage Staging Areas: These tents and buildings can also be used as staging areas where triage personnel can assemble and wait for necessary information. Also, they can be used to store whatever medical equipment and supplies will be needed at a moment’s notice.
    • Medical Screening Areas: Tents and fabric buildings can be used to quarantine potentially contagious emergency room patients from those without any symptoms. They can also be used as medical tents for patients who don’t show signs, so those with symptoms can be screened inside.
    • Drive-through Testing Areas: Testing facilities can contain the spread of infectious diseases by opening drive-through testing centers. Symptomatic patients with a doctor’s note drive up and stay in their car as they are tested. A fabric canopy can be used to keep medical personnel and testing equipment sheltered as they work.
    • Patient Isolation Areas: Should a mass number of patients with the same infectious disease need to be separated from the rest of the population, fabric buildings can be used as additional short-term patient isolation spaces.
