Healthcare flooring plays a crucial role in providing a safe, supportive environment for patients and caregivers. And several characteristics of flooring (slip resistance to mitigate falls, durability, cleanability etc.) come together to create this environment. With many options available that fit the bill, it can be challenging to know which type of flooring to select.
