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.
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.
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.
