Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Background/Purpose: The United States is engaged in one of the largest hospital building booms in history to replace aging hospitals, advance technology, and provide for the graying of baby boomers. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the existing and a newly-built children's hospital environment on patients, families, and staff. Specific aims: 1. Measure family and staff satisfaction with light, noise, temperature, aesthetics, and amenities; 2. Assess family use of overnight facilities; 3. Evaluate staff and family perceptions of safety, security, and privacy; 4. Compare nosocomial infection rates between the two facilities; 5. Track work flow and staff efficiency; 6. Examine correlations between private/semi-private rooms and clinical outcomes. Methodology: Using a pre-post survey design, all nursing, social work, therapy, housekeeping staff and families on selected inpatient units will be invited to participate. Demographic information, the Work Environment Scale (Moos, 1994), a Family and Staff Satisfaction Survey, and selected questions from the Press, Ganey Inpatient Pediatric Survey will be analyzed pre and post relocation. Data on nosocomial infection rates, staffing, work flow, skill mix and variance reports also will be collected. Findings: Data collection will begin April 2006 at the existing facility with the move to the new hospital scheduled for fall 2007. Approximately 6 and 12 months post move, data collection will be repeated. Comparisons will be made pre-post relocation and findings will be used to enhance the healing environment, attract and retain staff at a world class facility, and provide direction for future evidence-based architectural design.
