About Me:

  • I graduated from Georgia Tech in August, 2007 with an Industrial and Systems Engineering degree.
  • I have glasses.
  • This photo is WAY TOO BIG!!!




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.
