Session Description

The design of the Neurocritical Care Unit at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital recognized the necessity to support clinicians and visitors and augmented standard design decisions to be intentional about clinician productivity and thoughtful about visitor stress and wellness. By introducing design elements such as a tranquil, contemplative waiting space and a recessed family bench in each patient room, visitors are encouraged to find their own level of comfort and feel a sense of inclusion in the healing process. This session will review how each aspect of the design for clinicians and visitors were reviewed and optimized to create a state-of-the-art neurocritical care unit.
