An architect firm, the right design methods and a storage unit are making a difference for everyone who inhabits this intensive care unit.
The nurses, physicians, and specialists who are using the hospital to treat their patients can have a tough job. A healthcare professional’s job requires direct patient care, communication, access to technology, re-stocking, and so much more. A result of hospital design is these healthcare professionals getting frustrated because of the layout.
A nurse is constantly walking back and forth, “hunting and gathering” for supplies, and running to the centralized nurse station. It is simple. A nurse does not have the extra time to be running back and forth, “hunting and gathering,” and spending a very small percent of their day with patients.
Well, right now is supposedly springtime in the United States. With the weather beginning to transition, the plants will start blooming soon, giving patients the ability to get outside and enjoy the sunny weather. This is where outdoor healing spaces factor into healthcare facilities.
Have you ever been in a hospital that seems to function terribly for everyone? The nurses are struggling to find items, the rooms do not work for anyone, the lights are sole draining, and more. Sure, we all have been there. This is why Evidence Based Designs are so important in the healthcare architecture field and the architecture field as a whole.
While no one wants to end up there, but many of us have taken a trip to the hospital at one point or another. These are some trends currently being used in designing a pediatric healthcare facility!
All healthcare architects, healthcare engineers, patients, nurses, and physicians know what it is like to be in a hospital. However, all of these people have different perceptions of their hospital and their time while there. An architect has designed the hospital but has possibly never stayed in any of the hospitals they have designed. The engineers know the ins-and-outs of the design. The physicians and nurses are the ones who work long shifts each day in the hospital. And finally, the patients are the ones who stay in the hospital during their sickness with their families alongside them. Each and every one of these different experiences should be taken into consideration.
