The new environment provides a friendly atmosphere and can have a positive effect on the experience of everyone using the facility including patients, family, and hospital staff.
Calculations of the proposed design compared to the current architect’s plan show the following improvements:
- Patient rooms which will have access to direct or indirect daylight increases to 97%
- Nurses will have clear visibility over 82% of the patient rooms
- For the staff to collect medication, supplies, and equipment from storage and bring to a patient room, the number of steps was reduced by 49%
