Session ID: W20
Title: Patient Privacy & Tranquility: Creating Optimal Healing Environments
Date: 4/5/2017
Time: 10:00:00 AM - 11:30:00 AM
 
Session Description: Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing. Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene. These trends include:
 
·         A desire to better manage privacy with easily adjustable vision control options in patient rooms, nurses’ stations, surgical areas etc.
·         A desire to better manage or filter light from external sources (for both interior and exterior windows).
·         A move away from curtains and blinds that collect dust, are not hygienic and require regular cleaning/maintenance.
·         A desire to better attenuate sound for optimal tranquility.
 
This presentation will review options for privacy, lighting and sound control, and will further detail recent case studies from several leading healthcare facilities. It will also illustrate how good design can dampen noise and create a healing environment that is less stressful and more restful for patients.
