The constant interplay of activities throughout the nurses' stations are best served by flexible and responsive furnishings that allow for image, process, variable staff size and function. The dynamic nature of this nerve centre must be maintained so the primary task of patient care is given absolute priority.
Concentrated work, peer collaboration and consultations with families and patients work best when the place matches the activity. Caregivers need quiet places, private places and open, connected places- environments that give them control of their work space, from adjusting an ergonomic chair and workstation to reorganising supplies.
Work environments must include medication areas and equipment/supply storage, information retrieval and documentation areas, observation areas, break rooms and meeting spaces. We provide applications that support the dynamic work of caregivers and the fluid nature of healthcare.
Ergonomic, sound masked, aesthetically considered and comfortable work spaces improve the caregiving experience and make the environment a more positive place.
