Does the phrase “overworked staff, irritated patients, and unsatisfactory reviews” ring a bell? Many of your patients appear anxious and dissatisfied as they leave, despite the fact that you have an excellent team and a comfortable facility. To put it another way: where are we, and what is going on? It’s possible that your design’s lack of variety is to blame for the problems you’re experiencing, rather than the workers or the building itself.

Ideas for Designing a Clinical Space

The layout of a hospital should be easy to understand and follow. Visitors and patients to your hospital require simple instructions and an outline of what to expect when they arrive. They have too much on their plates to bother anyone in an office or to wander around aimlessly. If someone is hurt or needs medical attention immediately, even a short wait is too long.

Design aids in conveying vital information to patients and providing direction. I hope these Ideas for designing a clinical space will help you create a more welcoming environment for your patients and visitors at the hospital.

Welcome Sign

The first thing patients want to know when they arrive at your hospital is where they need to go. A large welcome sign with clear check-in instructions should be posted near the building’s front entrance to accommodate this demand. One large sign measuring 21″ x 32″ is preferable to a number of smaller signs. 

Directional Signs

Do your patients need to take a number before standing in line? Do they have to go to a kiosk to check in? These directions should be clearly marked with strategically placed signage. According to an article in the National Library of Medicine, “Experts recommend that signs should be brightly colored and include images or graphics to improve effectiveness.”

Floor Signs

Lighting and spatial considerations are crucial factors that can affect how colors appear in a room. They are among the best ideas for designing a clinical space. Natural light, artificial lighting, and the size of the space can all impact the perception of color.

Soundproof Wall Dividers

Those multipurpose, soundproof wall dividers are a godsend for noisy waiting rooms and are one of the best ideas for designing a clinical space. Noise reduction is especially helpful for patients who have difficulty hearing, as it allows them to more easily communicate with front desk personnel. These walls can be designed to accommodate artwork of any medium, scale, or orientation.

Calming Art

Calming Art

The calming effects of art should not be overlooked, especially in a medical facility. The art in your office says something about your business, if only subtly. Your patients and employees will have a more positive outlook on their work once you learn how to use soothing colors effectively. For more information about using calming colors and art forms, read this article.  If your hospital is simple to understand and use, you won’t have to deal with the issues we discussed earlier.

There will be less anxiety and better overall functioning in the clinic as a result of these modifications.

You should always keep in mind that communicating your message is the primary objective of your design. Is there a way to have clearer conversations with your patients?
