A mix of activities
Caregivers shift constantly from direct patient care to administrative tasks and information sharing. Concentrated work, peer collaboration, and consultations with families and patients work best when the place matches the activity. Caregivers need quiet places, private places, and open, connected places.
More than a nurses’ station
The caregiver's work environment includes medication areas and equipment/supply storage, information retrieval and documentation areas, observation areas, break rooms, and meeting spaces. Our solutions address specific functions and still retain a cohesive look and feel, even as they extend into adjacent patient and family spaces.
Spaces for collaboration and heads-down work
Collaborative work areas encourage staff exchanges and provide dedicated spaces for research and administrative work. Privacy screens, sound masking devices, acoustical components, and ergonomic work chairs create comfortable, efficient spaces for concentrated work.
Places to rest and refresh
Private spaces within the support core give caregivers a place to rejuvenate and unwind, consult confidentially with family or peers, or work in solitude. My Studio Environments supplemented with lounge or work furnishings fits the bill for "time out" space.
