The cubicle or privacy curtain has been a fixture in clinics, hospitals, and skilled-nursing facilities for decades. They serve a critical function in both maintaining patient and resident privacy and comfort, and in adding to a pleasing décor.

This course lays out some of the major considerations surrounding the use of cubicle curtains, specifically:

  • The Healthier Hospitals Initiative and chemicals of concern as it applies to privacy curtains.
  • Factors in employing disposable vs. washable curtains.
  • Enhancing patient comfort and healing by employing quieter cubicle curtain track.
