Alongside The Junipers PICU and Jasmine Lodge MBU, Russell Clinic makes up one of the varying wards on the Wonford House site in Exeter.  Recently undergoing a major refurbishment, the 16-bed facility provides specialist support and rehabilitation for people in a more residential setting.

Rehabilitation in a residential setting

As the threshold between public and private space for patients, doors are a significant and symbolic feature for both patients and staff. We worked closely with Devon Partnership to ensure the bedroom doors were safe without compromising the more residential feel of Russell Clinic.

Russell-Clinic-1

 

  • Anti-barricade doorsets are finished in bright, welcoming colours with soft timber beading - helping to create a less clinical, more homely feel

  • In case of an emergency situation, the collapsible anti-barricade stop provides staff with access into the bedroom in just 2 seconds using the Lifeline key (the same key used to operate the vision panel.)
  •  
  • If for any reason the locksets are tampered with in an effort to prevent staff gaining access, the 5-way SOS lockset is designed to override the internal lock using an emergency toolkit stored in the nearest staff base.

 

Lifesaving technology

In the patient bedroom area, the anti-barricade doors are also fitted with our full-door ligature alarm which detects ligature attempts across the entire door.

  • With full-door ligature detection, the door acts as a weighing scale - raising an alarm when a vertical load of over 10kg is detected
  •  
  • This supports clinical staff in their care by helping to fill in blind spots between observations.
  •  
  • Apart from the small maintenance panel on the side of the door, the alarm can't be seen from within the bedroom
  •  
  • This reduces the potentially harmful impact that noticeable ligature prevention products can have on patients' self worth
