Designing Door Treatments for Improved Patient Outcomes in Hospitals
“Hospital design and architecture can play an important role in a patient’s recovery and well-being. A number of studies have examined how hospital design and architecture affect patients and healthcare workers, and the results make a compelling case for patient-centered design. This means that doors aren’t just doors anymore - they need to be more than just entrance portals or barriers. Doors are increasingly being considered as part of an optimal patient recovery environment.”
