Planning the Design and Construction of Healthcare facilities is a very specialised field that has begun getting its due only in the last few years in India. This is because we have now come to realize the important role the design and planning of the hospital plays in healing the patient. The aim of an architect is to ensure that their design satisfies the people living and functioning in the space they design. In a hospital this includes the Doctors, Nurses, Staff and of course the Patient. The design of a hospital must meet all their requirements. It is therefore the Architect’s duty and responsibility to design accordingly.
Patient Care guides our Healthcare Design. Their safety and quality of care is the aim of all our Architects, Planners, Quality Consultants and Project Managers.
How Accreditation brought in change to the field of Hospital Design
The scenario began to change with the advent of Healthcare Accreditations like the NABH & JCI and Consultants like us, specialising in the field. Vast experience in the area of Quality Accreditation helped us understand the requirement for specific infrastructure to meet the NABH & JCI requirements and that looking into these aspects right from the healthcare facility planning and layout stage was not just important but mandatory.
Right from designing the widths of the staircases and corridors, planning the layouts of areas like the Operation Theatres and Critical Care Units, to providing the required space between Beds in the Wards and even locating the Nursing Stations etc., we saw how almost all areas of the Hospital needed to be designed with regard to meeting the Patient Safety requirements of the Accreditation Standards.
Improving Patient Outcomes – Responsibility of all Hospital Planners and Architect
As Hospital Architects and Designers our role is to help improve patient outcomes at the Hospital by preventing spread of infections and being able to send patients home faster. We need to ensure through our Hospital Design that there is proper infection control through better Planning & Layout of the Facility ensuring better Patient & Staff Flow and controlled air movement.
In addition to Patient Safety, other aspects, as Hospital Planners and Designers we help make all areas of the Hospital Accessible and Patient Friendly, a very important contributory factor in improving outcomes.
Hence the Importance of having Hospital Architects to be Qualified and Experienced specifically in the field of Healthcare
