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.
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).
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.
