Figures 1, 2 and 3 show different three dimensional views of our patient room design. Figure 1 focuses on the patient area and entryway, Figure 2 on the bathroom, and Figure 3 shows the extensive family area. Not visible are the patient dresser and flat screen television.
Designing a patient room is a complex process that requires the incorporation of safety features, codes and guidelines, and consumer desires. During the process we were able to gather input from professionals to see what many current rooms lack. With our design, we were able to create a modern layout that first and foremost focused on the well-being of the patient. Also important to the design were features that will continue to be appealing to healthcare professionals (i.e. nurses) and help to increase their productivity.
We designed our room keeping in mind that even small details could have a large impact on the wellness of the patient and the work environment for the healthcare professionals. With this goal in mind, we believe that we have designed a room that is targeted to both of these groups. The patients benefit from natural light in a warm and welcoming room environment that also has an emphasis on family. We also designed to minimize the fatigue and stress experienced by nurses by creating an efficient room layout that with short walking distances, viewing windows, and “nurse servers”. Overall, we think that our design is both innovative and useful in these regards.
