Part 4 of 4. Safety First.

Minimizing staff and patient errors and events through physical design can have a dramatic effect on operational costs. Your facility should carefully analyze the impact of:

  • Slip-resistant flooring
  • Appropriate lighting in medication dispensing areas
  • Patient handling devices and careful storage/access of this equipment
  • Convenient access to hand washing stations
  • Reducing noise to improve communication accuracy
  • Infection reduction through layout and material selection
  • Physical security both around the perimeter and interior of the building
