Combine radiation protection for personnel and well-being for patients: the example of the Centre Georges Charpak at Quimper
The problem: "Ultra-sophisticated equipment in a reassuring setting for high quality care"
The opening of the Centre Georges Charpak at Quimper is the result of collaboration and discussion between the medical teams and the Lemer Pax engineers, leading to a high level of quality both as regards care of patients and the working conditions offered to employees.
The aim of guaranteeing complete safety for the workers, while ensuring optimum comfort, was a major concern right from the start of the department design phase.
For Doctor Georges-Philippe Fontaine – group director and GCS administrator – guaranteeing his staff minimum exposure and keeping category B classification was absolutely vital. Ergonomics and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders were also priorities.
In addition, the safety of the patient, which is a major stake and structures the highly advanced quality policy in this team, was a decisive factor when choosing the equipment and the facilities. Lastly, the aesthetics are also extremely important in the overall understanding of the files by Doctor Fontaine.
