By On Oct 15, 2018 Bathroom Design
With tubs giving way to walk-in showers in terms of popularity, Don Harrier, principal at HKS, suggested taking advantage of the extra space to include a bigger vanity or to make the shower a statement piece with glass partitions and a great rain shower head.
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.
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.
