The smaller staff area can also make it challenging to comfortably accommodate a handwashing sink, supplies, computer monitors, and workspace, adds Jocelyn M. Stroupe, principal of healthcare interiors at CannonDesign (Chicago).
On the other hand, Rick Abbott, principal of Hord Coplan Macht (Baltimore), says that the vestibule created through an inboard design can create a pinch point for maneuvering the bed in and out of the room. Additionally, all the plumbing risers are now located along the corridor, so in the future, it becomes harder to renovate around these risers, he says.
That leads to the next key design decision: a same-handed or mirrored patient room configuration. Same-handed arrangements orient all rooms and their contents in the same direction, whereas mirrored rooms are designed back-to-back, providing plumbing efficiencies with a shared wall between bathrooms.
