Title:
Using Evidence-Based Design Strategies in the Planning of the New Parkland Hospital
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Evidence-based design is a way to determine a best practice in the construction of new healthcare facilities. Evidence-based design is both a process, requiring the evaluation of evidence and a product which requires the evidence is applied to practice. Being able to design safe, efficient, adaptable and patient-focused healthcare facilities is dependent on having current and accurate information. This presentation will provide the learner with knowledge about the way research, expert advise and data gathered from successful operations was used in the planning of The New Parkland Hospital so the patient and family are provided with the most safe and effective experience as an inpatient or out patient and the healthcare worker is provided with an equally safe and efficient work environment  Healing environments that are comfortable, pleasant to view, and free of clutter and dangerous organisms are described with pictures of concepts of the New Parkland Hospital. Tools such as Time Study RN and Layout IQ were used to assess caregiver efficiency and are described with pictures used to demonstrate the very nature of the problem and the ways evidence has been used to create both a pleasant environment but a safe and efficient one. The ways space, color, light, and distance are used to create safe, and pleasing environments will be explained with pictures to demonstrate the reality. Planned technologies and how they will impact the inpatient and outpatient environments are also presented with pictures of their potential, based on evidence, to create a best practice design for today and the future.
