While walk-in showers have their appeal, Griffin said that they may pose challenges in terms of drainage, especially when the drain is hidden off to the side of the shower tray rather than in the middle. Make sure that the water drains out so you are not standing in a puddle of water all the time. When you are laying down tile, your tile installer needs to be top notch and know just how to angle everything so it runs toward the drain
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.
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.
