The doctors’ (examination) rooms should be designed in a way to establish and support the trust relationship between the doctor and the patient. An efficient and well-equipped examination room that support the interaction between the patient and his/her relatives and keep patient satisfaction at the forefront should also be designed considering the use of technology for diagnosis and treatment.
Patients and their relatives spend most of their time sedentary while waiting to be served or waiting for the test results. In general, people suffer from stress and anxiety while they are at the hospital. Therefore, people should be provided with an environment that will encourage people to talk, interact, rest, get comfortable, and use their personal devices to keep them in touch with the outside world. Using calming colours, personal items, seats for patient relatives, works of art such as paintings and sculptures that support physical comfort as well as emotional comfort creates a relaxing effect.
Creating spaces where not only patients but also healthcare professionals can relax and spend time by themselves will increase the motivation and productivity of the employees.
Meeting/ Working Areas
If the working areas used by healthcare professionals for research and administrative purposes are designed as ergonomically and aesthetically comfortable spaces, it will support work flow processes and cooperation among the personnel and allow healthcare professionals to serve effectively and efficiently. It is important that the meeting or seminar halls used for briefing or training activities are designed in such a way that they can be deployed easily according to the specific need and purpose.
