Single Patient Rooms: WEBINAR RECORDING 28th July
WEBINAR RECORDING | The Journey Towards Single In-Patient Rooms
An approach to a 28 single-bed ward
“Understanding that the design of the ward is intrinsically tied to how you nurse that ward has been one of the most enriching processes of this design process to date.” – Jaime Bishop, architect.
In this round-the-table discussion, Jaime Bishop, Co-Chair of Architects for Health; Warren Edwards, Project Director at Health Spaces; Paula Miller, Chief Nursing Projects Officer (New Hospital Team); and Diane Goodwin, Operations Director for the New Hospital Programme, shared the journey taken by James Paget University Hospital as the Trust develops a new 28 bedded decant ward.
Highlighting the journey of the ward layout designs, the team demonstrated how they were able to incorporate the guidance of the New Hospital Programme (NHP), evolving layout designs to include 71% single-bed rooms.
“For an architect designing a hospital the most important part of any hospital is the staff, and the most important part of that staff is the nursing, and I think understanding that the design of the ward is intrinsically tied to how you nurse that ward has been one of the most enriching processes of this design process to date.” – Jaime Bishop, architect.
