Imagine you are the health care administrator that has been reviewing the architect’s recommendations for toilet placement within the new wing of the hospital. The architect has provided you with four toilet placement options. The options are outboard, inboard, same-handed, or nested layout. It is important to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each recommendation prior to providing your opinion of the placement to the architects.
Use the Using Evidence-Based Design Principles to Design worksheet to organize your research of evidence-based design principles and the four toilet placements within the new wing of the hospital. On the worksheet, you should:
· Describe the evidence-based design principle for each layout.
· Describe the impact on the stakeholder’s experience with each placement (e.g. , patients, medical staff, hospital staff, family, and visitors).
· Cite at least 1 peer-reviewed, scholarly, or similar references to support each evidence-based design principle.
Cite at least 4 reputable references used to complete your worksheet. One reference must be from the journal/magazine listed in the weekly resources (i.e., Modern Healthcare, Healthcare Design). Reputable references include trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality.
