Articles of interest:

[[1]] "Scariest Hospital Risks" While not addressed directly in the article, it underscores the need for a sound, efficient and safe waste management system, which is critical in preventing the spread of bacteria/disease. Before our brainstorm I had never thought about waste and the implications of its use/misuse (I guess out of sight out of mind!) but now I see it as an essential component.

[[2]] "A Treatment Room with a View" Interesting article on evidence-based design and the call for more patient-friendly hospitals. As one expert states, ""Most veterinarians put their patients in better surroundings than patients who are getting chemo." Yikes. What did hospitals do before they employed evidence-based design? Is the rise of E-BD parallel to the increase in patient and family centered care?
