Studies have shown that more patient falls occur when patients are trying to access the bathrooms, reports Bowman. Our interior design team always locates patient bathrooms at the headwall due to the shorter travel distance and accessibility to handrails.
Ventilation may not be top-of-mind when it comes to designing a hotel bathroom, but it should certainly be a point of consideration. Many hotels use a central stack design to ventilate their hotel rooms, said Gary Church-Smith, an indoor air-quality specialist with Panasonic Eco Solutions. They put a fan on the roof, and as result of that, the upper floors get better ventilation than the lower floors do because the lower floors are so far away from the fan. The farther a room is from that rooftop fan, he said, the less effective the fan is for ventilating that room.
A side benefit of installing fans in the bathrooms is that the main rooftop fan for the central stack can be significantly smaller because each guestroom can individually control how much air is being drawn out from the space.
