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.
At the same time, the water pressure needs to be consistent on all floors—which, Griffin said, can be an issue depending on the size of the pipes and the way the pipes are run through the walls. We kind of went through trial and error on some of our other properties, and every time, it just gets better because you learn where the issues are.
For example, nested configurations work best in same-handed rooms, allowing designers to achieve desirable sight lines, family zones, and views outside while reducing plumbing costs thanks to that shared wall, says Paul Macheske, associate principal and director of healthcare design at Hunton Brady (Orlando).
