Better Hospital Space Planning with Input from Nurses

National Nursing Research Symposium, Stanford, CA, June 2, 2017

At the National Nursing Research Symposium, hosted by Stanford Children’s Health and Stanford Health Care, NBBJ Healthcare Principal Teri Oelrich will share her experience in the hospital design process during a talk titled “Clinical Implications for Space and Health Care Planning for Practice Environments — The Nursing Perspective.” Understanding that nurses play an essential role in the space planning of healthcare environments, Teri will discuss areas in which their input can improve space design and patient healing outcomes. She will address the rapid prototyping process, locations of nurse stations and future patient room design.
