Container Hospital: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

Container hospitals are becoming a preferred building option due to their portability.

Through this guide, you will learn a lot about container hospitals such as their features, components, advantages, safety requirements and waste management among others.

By the time you are done, you will become an expert in container hospitals.

Let’s get started:

What is Container Hospital?

Container clinic

Figure 1 Container hospital – Photo credit: ACT

A container hospital is a portable healthcare facility made using several different container units.

It is made using insulated sandwich material and pre-painted galvanized steel structures.

Container hospitals must be set on a flat.

The area must have necessary infrastructure such as tap water and a power supply.

Container hospital can exist as a stand-alone or an augment of healthcare facility.

They provide the flexibility to work at various locations and time.

What are the Materials used to make Container Hospital?

The main materials used to make container hospitals are customized steel structure and sandwich panels.

·  Galvanized Steel Structure

This material has high tensile strength.

It is easily available and affordable.

It can be used to make the walls and floors of the container hospital.

This material is pre-painted and galvanized using zinc coating which helps in preventing rusting.

·  Sandwich Panels

Sandwich panels are suitable for making container hospitals because they are light weight, less costly and have high structural rigidity.

Mineral wool is the used inner insulating core material between two panels.

Are used to make the walls and roof.

Other used materials used include PVC and Aluminum. Aluminum is used to make the doors of the container hospitals.

Also, it is used to make the ceiling of the container hospitals.

It has great properties such as being easily formed into different customs, light weight, and greater strength.

PVC is mainly used for making partition doors and windows. It is mostly used for sheeting and flooring.

How does a Container Hospital and Stationery Hospital compare?

Figure 2 St Thomas hospital UK

Container hospital

Figure 3 Container hospital

Container hospitals and stationery hospitals function in the same way.

Stationery hospitals are bigger than container hospitals which are around 10 containers along. They are also bigger in regards to the square metres they occupy.

In terms of cost, container hospitals are cheaper as compared to stationery hospitals which involve paying for building materials, laborers, resources, purchasing land among other costs.

Container hospitals can be redeployed: they are portable while stationery hospitals are not portable.

What are the Features of Container Hospitals?

Below are the features of container hospitals:

Figure 4 Container clinic layout

·        General Clinic Unit

This is an area where general medical activities are undertaken such measuring the weight of children, vaccinations, and immunizations among others.

·  Laboratory

This is the area where all the tests are done.

·  Operating Theatre

Container hospitals have a unit functioning as operation theatre.

It is especially useful for pregnant mothers waiting to deliver and also have some complications.

·  Pharmacy

Once patients have received drug prescriptions from their doctor, they purchase those drugs from the container hospital’s pharmacy.

· Waiting Area

This is a section where all the incoming patients have to sit and wait for healthcare services.

It is a large space close to the entry of the container hospital.

·  Treatment Area

This is the area where patients receive treatment once they have been tested and diagnosed. This place can have the patient wards.

· Water Treatment Units

Container hospital has water treatment units to aid in water conservation. Without constant supply of water, the hospital may not run smoothly. Water treatment is, therefore, done in the container hospital.

· Generators/Back-up Power Supply

For the container hospital to effectively function, there has to be a constant power supply. Without power, the specimens in the laboratory may die. Also, operating several other machines may not be possible. As such, a container hospital has an already installed generator as well as electricity system plugs ready for use in the site of choice.

What are the Safety Requirements of Container Hospitals?

Container hospitals as stationery hospitals must provide a safe and comfortable environment for its patients and staff.

Below are some of the safety requirements of container hospitals:

Container hospital

Figure 5 Container hospital

  • There must be ramps across the container hospital to facilitate easy movement of people with disability who often rely on wheelchairs for easy movement.
  • There has to be an air filtration and ventilation systems which facilitates easy flow of air in and out of the room.

Without a good HVAC system, people may be suffocated in the container hospitals and possibly cross infection.

  • There has to be fire alarm systems which are used to inform people inside the container hospital about potential fires when they occur.

This fire alarm system is watched 24/7 by a staff.

  • There has to be proper waste management in the container hospital to limit any possible contaminations which may be sources of hospital infections.
  • It also has a negative pressure system required for bio-containment. As such, it is designed to be as safe as a hospital with biocontainment. Biocontainment are multiple safety practices used to prevent the spread of diseases.

What is the Waste Management in Container Hospitals?

Reusable materials are used to cut down on cost and contributions to landfill waste. Biomedical waste and sharp objects such as syringes are incinerated.

High pressure wash of container hospitals. Firstly, there is disinfection of the facilities.

For disinfection, biodegradable detergents, high water pressure, and high temperatures are used.

As a result, there is bacterial load reduction as every part of the container hospital is reached.

Bins are placed in strategic positions within the container hospitals to limit contact and contamination.

Closed lidded bins are placed in patient wards, ICUs and toilets among other places.

Similarly, the bins can be placed within locked medicine rooms or supervised nurses’ station.

They are equally labelled on the date they are placed out in the facility for use and when they are taken out.

This helps in determining the first day when hazardous material was dropped in there.

When conducting weekly inspections of the hazardous wastes, the involved staff should put on personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks and coats.

Also, there has to be a collection log to show that each location has the right hazardous container with a label on it.

The frequent inspections are also to determine whether there are cracks or leaks to the bins. If so, they have to be replaced with new and working bins.

What are the Advantages of Container Hospitals?

Below are the advantages of container hospitals:

·  Eco-friendly

The materials used to make container hospitals are eco-friendly.

·  Cost-effective

As compared to building a new hospital from the scratch, container hospitals are cheaper.

· Long Service Lifespan

Container hospitals have a longer service period. They can be used for several decades and be reused again at new locations.

·  Stable Enough

Container hospitals are stable enough as they are made using strong steel materials. They are also made in such a way that they can stand on their own on flat surfaces. They can similarly survive harsh terrains and poor weather conditions.

·  Weather Proof

The raw materials used to make container hospitals are weather resistant. They can withstand string rains, high heat or sun.

· Easily Installed

Once at the site of location, container hospitals can be easily installed.

· Can be Assembled into different Sizes Depending on Customer Specifications

Where can you use Container Hospital?

Container hospital

Figure 6 Container hospital

Disaster relief; when a disaster such as an earthquake hits a place and there is large population of injured or wounded patients.

A container hospital can be used to provide health care services. As such, stationery hospitals in disaster zones have been damaged or there weren’t any at the start.

Army/Military camps; these places are often in battlegrounds or war zones where there are no or limited health facilities.

Container clinics are, therefore, used in such areas.

Emergency areas; these are places experiencing emergency situations such as civil wars and there are large numbers of injured people requiring immediate healthcare services.

Deserts and rural areas are remote places without any health infrastructures. There are no health facilities or healthcare workers to tend to the needs of a population of patients.

Since container hospitals are portable, they are deployed to such locations. Container hospitals, therefore, boost healthcare access in such remote areas.

Container hospitals can be used in areas needing quick medical solutions.

When in a place there is no maternal care services, container hospitals can be used to provide those services to the patient population.

When there is public health crisis. For instance, with the current Covid-19 pandemic, hospitals have been pushed beyond their limits.

As such, there is need for container hospitals to address the needs of the large population of patients.

What is the difference between Container Clinic and Container Hospital?

Container clinics are smaller in size than the container hospitals.

Container clinics have around 3 units/containers while container hospitals have around 10 containers/units or more.

A container clinic needs only one doctor to run while a container hospital needs at least four doctors to run.

A container hospital can have a clinic unit within the facility while a container clinic stands on its own.

The components of a container clinic are less as compared to those of a container hospital.

Container hospital functions as a stationer hospital hence it has more features and components than a container clinic.

For instance, while a container clinic only has a waiting bay, treatment rooms and laboratory, a container hospital has these rooms plus additional ones such as surgery rooms or even ICUs.

Both container clinic and container hospital have a waiting bay. This is a well-designed place within the facilities.

How long does it take to deploy Container Hospital?

It takes around 1-3 days to deploy a container hospital.

How can you Ship Container Hospital from China?

Container clinics can be shipped through three main means:

·  Sea

To transport the container hospitals on sea, ships are used. Ships are preferred because they are fast. Also, it is easy to load and unload container hospitals on ships.

·  Road

On roads, container hospitals can be transported through trucks. Drivers drive for very long periods as they take the container hospitals to their final destinations. Roads take very long times.

·  Rail

Trains are used to transport the container hospitals to their final site location. They are not very fast but are more efficient as compared to roads.

And, these means of transport are used as long as there is an existing infrastructure

What Equipment are used in Container Hospitals?


Figure 7 Inside container hospital

Several equipmentare used in container hospitals.

They include:

Weighing machines; there are weighing machines for adults as well as young children. They are used in measuring the weights of patients.

Pulse oximeter; this is an equipment that monitors a patient’s blood oxygen level with a sensor which is clipped over the finger or toe.

Medical kits; this equipment keeps medical drugs and devices used for life-threatening conditions.

This kit contains air management supplies, dressings, oxygen tank, pressure ventilation equipment, IV fluids, suctions, cardiac medications and splints among others.

Hospital stretchers; this equipment is very key during emergency situations. It is used to transport patients to the different rooms where they receive care.

Defibrillators; are typically used in life-threatening situations. They restore normal heart rhythm.

Patient monitors; this equipment helps keep track of patient’s health condition. It also helps keep accurate track of patient’s condition before and after surgery.

Anesthesia machines; this equipment is used to provide a continuous and accurate supply of medical gases to maintain a proper supply of medical gases to the patient.

Sterilizers; autoclave sterilizers are especially used in container hospitals to help kill microbial life present on the surfaces of medical items and surgical tools.

Wheelchairs; this equipment is required in container hospitals to aid in movement of patients from one location to the other.

For instance, if a patient under IV needs to undergo further tests, they are placed in a wheelchair to the place of testing and back.

Surgical tables; this equipment is used during surgical procedures, patient preparation and recovery.

Surgical lights; this equipment helps surgeons work under good lighting conditions.

Mechanical Ventilators; this machine is used to help patient breath when they cannot breath well on their own.

Microscope; an instrument that produces enlarged images of small objects enabling the observer a closer view of minute structures.

Refrigerator; this is a machine used to storing sample specimens in the right conditions.

Are Container Hospitals Customizable?

Yes, they are.

Container hospitals can be customized specially to fit the needs, as well as, specifications of a client.

These specifications can be on the design options, sizes, equipment to include, materials used as well as the layout of the container hospital.

Also, they are customized according to a country’s industrial and environmental demands.

The final container hospital is what a client wished for.

What are the Components of Container Hospital?

Some of the key components include:

Integrated air distribution vents and ducts; these are installed within the container hospitals to aid in ventilation of the rooms as well as air filtration.

Power distribution systems; this system aids in the circulation of power to all the units as well as equipments that require electricity to function.

Water system; water pipes are installed in container hospitals to aid in supply of water for use. These pipes are stationed in strategic locations where they are needed for use.

For instance, pipes are placed in the labs, operating theatre, and toilet systems.

Communication systems; this is a system that facilitates communication between the staff and the nurses as well as staff.

This central communication system helps in the interaction among these parties.

Toilet systems; container hospital has variety of toilets for key staff, patients and utility staff all placed strategically within the facility.

Medical gas system; there has to be adequate supply of gas to patients in need. In Anesthesia, there is need for medical gas without it, the patient dies.

What Quality Standards do Container Hospitals conform to?

You have to make sure that the container hospital you are buying is high quality. And, this can be done through conforming to the below quality standards:

Container hospitals manufacturing companies must be ISO9001:2008 certified.
