Interdisciplinary Design Teams in Poland - Architecture as a Tool for Preventing Hospital-Acquired Infections
Hospital-acquired infections pose a problem, which directly affects the safe usage of healthcare facilities. On a global scale, the level of hospital-acquired infections (HAI) is estimated to affect 5–15% of those hospitalised. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that, on an annual basis, procedures preventing hospital-acquired infections consume 80 billion dollars . In this context, it becomes important to create...
Abstract Ergonomics answers the need of safe development of space by creating spatial forms which help to implement the safety procedures and limit the threats involved both in ordinary use of the spaces and in case of unforeseen events. Using the knowledge of ergonomics and architecture on the basis of defining the routes of germ transmission, allows to limit the spread of those organisms. Ergonomics of developing architectural...
One of the most crucial decisions to be made while designing and re-modernizing an operating theatre is selecting a method of transporting the patient through the hospital’s spatial arrangement. This decision, while irrelevant at first thought, implies numerous project and functional consequences. Designing an operating theatre within a hospital is related to numerous specialist requirements with an aim of minimizing the risk of...
