Additionally, Macheske says that nonhandicapped patients also benefit from ADA accessible fixtures. For example, a higher toilet is easier to get on and off of for post-surgical patients, and a shower seat can be very helpful for medicated patients and/or those who are less stable than normal.
Finally, when considering where to locate the bathroom in relation to the patient bed—either on the footwall or headwall—a footwall placement frees up the headwall for medical equipment and the patient can better enjoy views to the outdoors with a path to the bathroom that’s visually clear. On the other hand, when the bathroom is placed at the headwall, patients have a shorter path of travel, which reduces the risk of falls.
As an example, Church-Smith cited the Best Western Central Hotel in Harrisburg, Pa., which had fans already installed in the guest bathrooms, but faced guest complaints about the noise from the system. Church-Smith recommended an updated two-for-one unit that combined a recessed LED with a fan that brings humidity up through the same hole that the light is in. It eliminates [the need for] another hole in the ceiling, he said of the new units.
