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.
Try something new if your standard 3-light vanity fixture does not create an ambiance you love. As well as functional, lighting should create a soothing environment that helps calm and relax during a shower. To achieve this effect, hire an electrician to install a medium-sized chandelier in the center of the bathroom or above the Jacuzzi, paired with a row of colored blown-glass light fixtures by an accent wall (the wall across from the vanity is a great location). These light fixtures would typically be installed above a kitchen breakfast counter or a bar table. But who says you can not use them in the bathroom? We are here to break the mold and customize your space. Concealed lighting is always great, especially if you have a decorative stepped ceiling.
