Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the impact of an existing and newly-built hospital environment on patients, families, and staff. Data were collected to assess family and staff satisfaction with light, noise, temperature, aesthetics, and amenities; family use of overnight facilities; and family and staff perceptions of safety, security, and privacy. Using a pre-post descriptive survey design, interdisciplinary staff and families on selected inpatient units were invited to participate. Demographic data and Family and Staff Satisfaction Surveys were administered prior to moving to the new facility and at 6 months post-occupancy. Press Ganey Inpatient Pediatric Surveys were analyzed pre and post occupancy as well as noise and light readings. A separate survey was distributed to all families using the decentralized sleep rooms to evaluate the reasons for their use and their satisfaction with the accommodations. Also collected were staff turnover data. Pre/post results showed the mean scores for staff satisfaction improved on all subscales across all units. Items showing the most improvement were layout of the patient room, amount of natural light, placement of sinks, and overall comfort and appeal. Family satisfaction scores pre/post also confirmed improvement on all subscales especially in the amount of natural light, quiet space, parking, and the child's room as a healing environment. Press Ganey inpatient parent satisfaction surveys showed improvement pre/post in all categories relevant to the built environment. Hospital turnover remained stable or declined since relocation to the new campus demonstrating staff commitment to creating a safe, quality, healing environment.
