Medical Centres - Making them better for everyone

News

What do you feel when you visit the doctor or attend a clinic – stress, excitement, anxiety, acceptance, boredom, positivity, reassurance, cared for or valued?


No matter what we are there for, whether by choice or necessity, we should never feel alarm, fear or unnecessary distress because of the medical facilities.


There is an exceptionally informative research report that was provided to the Center for Health Design, which considers how design of medical facilities can help:

  1. reduce staff stress and fatigue
  2. increase effectiveness in delivering care,
  3. improve patient safety,
  4. reduce patient and family stress
  5. improve outcomes, and
  6. improve overall healthcare quality.

The report assesses the links between the physical setting and patient and staff outcomes.


“The team found [600] scientific studies that document the impact of a range of design characteristics, such as single-rooms versus multi-bed rooms, reduced noise, improved lighting, better ventilation, better ergonomic designs, supportive workplaces and improved layout that can help reduce errors, reduce stress, improve sleep, reduce pain and drugs, and improve other outcomes.”


With this body of evidence and guidance, we (builders, medical practitioners and health care developers) need to assess how these recommendations can be implemented.

  • fewer strong pain medications
  • lower levels of distress and/or stress

  • greater pain tolerance
