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.
