Managing Risks: Caring for your Caregivers

Posted by Karyl Walker on Fri, Jan 29, 2021 @ 02:24 PM

Managing risk in a healthcare setting becomes a complex task, requiring organizations to consider both the overtly unsafe act and the hidden danger in the environment. Each facility will have its own risk profile based on the characteristics of its physical space, workforce, and populations served. This is why it's so important to have access to tailored solutions that can correct any shortcomings in a facility's furniture and equipment.

Use Design to Create a Healing Environment

Posted by Karyl Walker on Mon, Oct 26, 2020 @ 04:22 PM

High quality, evidence-based clinical care proves to be the most essential element for good patient/resident outcomes. Yet no facility should ignore the importance of the physical environment in promoting healing. A growing body of research demonstrates that the design features you select will make a major difference in either facilitating or impeding your clients' progress.

The use of evidence-based design in healing environments originated from 1980s research that found post-surgery patients who had a view of natural scenery recovered better than patients who faced a brick wall. Since then, other studies have shown that features such as peaceful artwork, access to natural light and limited background noise all play an important role in patient well-being.

Consistency in design also can improve your staff's productivity. Limiting the use of surfaces that are subject to frequent contamination reduces the threat of infection, no small consideration today. Improved lighting and acoustics have a calming effect on staff and can reduce the potential for costly errors.

The good news is improvements that make a difference do not have to carry a hefty price tag. Simple color choices, for example, can do wonders to promote healing. Blues, greens and neutral tones are known to create a calming effect. Any serene natural settings around your facility also should be incorporated into your design.

Here at Furniture Concepts we offer space planning and design expertise that can maximize your facility's capacity for promoting healing. Our furniture lines offer an ideal combination of form and function, with durable solid construction that conveys a home-like feel for patient rooms and group areas.

Aesthetically pleasing spaces that feature comfortable furnishings, soothing colors and natural light will enhance patient well-being and improve outcomes. We can assist you in humanizing your clinical environment, for the benefit of your patients, their families, and your workforce.

Posted by Karyl Walker on Sat, Feb 29, 2020 @ 04:16 PM

Perhaps the most heartbreaking and tragic situation that can take place in a treatment center is patient suicide. And while it is just not possible to prevent every attempt at self-harm, progress toward minimizing these acts is being made. One important factor in the fight against self-harm is to use ligature-resistant furniture.
