VA West Los Angeles Medical Center
The Department of Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles (VA GLA) Healthcare System has a requirement for a Mobile Mass Decontamination Trailer.
VHA Directive 2003-045 requires VAMCs to protect their patients, staff, and facilities from terrorist attacks involving WMDs, including chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) agents. A patient decontamination (DECON) trailer is the best way to enhance the VA GLA’s capability to respond to CBRN incidents, due to the VA GLA’s sprawling campus layout.
A DECON trailer integrates all functions of a decontamination facility, including showers and conveyor system for non-ambulatory patients, in a single trailer and would allow our patient decontamination team to set up and operate anywhere within the campus.
The solicitation describes a 30’L x 8’4″W cleansing trailer with two 3-stall decontamination lanes (disrobe, cleanse, and dress) and a third portable de-con roller system when decontaminating immobilized victims. Each lane is equipped with non-skid ramps, shower heads, hand-held sprayers, an on demand gravity-fed detergent mixing system, and a sprayed in rubberized floor with drains.
