Healing the Hospital Environment
Vergriffen, keine Neuauflage
Healing the Hospital EnvironmentThe general appearance , interior design and environmental quality of hospitals and healthcare buildings have an important influence on patients, staff and the public. But many hospitals and healthcare environments fail to create a positive impression. Healing the Hospital Environment identifies why many healthcare premises do not look or feel welcoming and why even well-intentioned efforts to make improvements are often unsuccessful. The authors show that significant improvements can be made within limited resources if hospitals recognise what can be achieved, set standards and invest in the relevant design expertise. This practical and generously illustrated book is written to inform those who are responsible for these important public buildings what can be achieved. It gives a wide range of examples of effective improvement in design, maintenance and management of all types of hospital and healthcare premises and their surrounding land. It is also intended to help design professionals adapt to the particular requirements of these buildings and their wide range of functions.
