Care Unit 3

Care Unit 3 is a large ward with four beds. It appears in Matter Of Life And Death and Ring Around The Moon. This is the first time we see the standard Medical computer bank, with 3 screens, at the head of the beds. Furnishings include the Ergastolo folding screen (designed by Walter Eichenberger), a Giano ashtray (Emma Gismondi Schweinberger, 1966) and a Stadio 120 table (Vico Magistretti, 1966).

Matter Of Life And Death

The facing walls are identical, each with two beds.

Matter Of Life And Death

Stadio 120 table with Gaudi chair. On the table is a Lucciola desk lamp and a molecular "ball and stick" model (the black balls are carbon, red is oxygen, white is hydrogen). The ball-and-stick models are also seen in Helena's office and Bergman's quarters.

Matter Of Life And Death

Tables and trays are covered with bottles of coloured liquid, none with obvious labels.

Matter Of Life And Death

View towards the double doors, with a communications post and doctor's desk.

Matter Of Life And Death

There are two beds on each side. Russell is on one side. Note the mirror on the central shelf unit (which appears later in The Taybor)

Matter Of Life And Death

On the other side are Parks and Bannion. There's a Ergastolo folding screen, by a Selene chair

Matter Of Life And Death

This is the only time we see a bit of the 4th wall at the end of Care Unit (where the camera and crew normally stand).

Ring Around The Moon

In Ring Around The Moon the individual computer panels have changed since Matter Of Life And Death but the layout is identical.

Ring Around The Moon

The central shelf unit has a light or scanner arm attached.

Ring Around The Moon

Later in Ring Around The Moon the beds are removed, and the lights go pale green (in the final scenes of the episode, they are white again).
