Particularly Interesting Remarks:
 
* Most doctors are not employed by the hospital -> the hospital "allows" doctors on the staff.
 
* Hughes Spalding designers wished to make the new hospital "more like home" for the patient focus.
 
+ warm colors
 
+ lots of windows
 
+ natural light
 
+ hardwook floors -> fake linoleum!
 
+ music
 
* new beds employ self-propulsion
 
* staff lounges have more windows, which really helps with staff retention
 
* put supplies in the same locations at all 3 places
 
* wireless access EVERYWHERE. but is it free?
 
* "Computers on Wheels" (COWs) keep up with paperwork management for hospital staff. 1 for every 5 rooms.
 
 
Food for Thought:
 
* How can you design something so creative/innovative that someone will want to put their name on it?
 
* How do you make everyone jump on the bandwagon? This seems to be a prevalent problem with new innovations EVERYWHERE, not just health care.
 
 
I wrote down a few notes about "room messaging," which would explain everything you would want to know about what is going on with a certain procedure happening in that room, etc. However, I don't remember if that is actually being employed or if it is a new idea. I'll ask someone.
