Designing the Perfect Inpatient Unit Part II

Back in June I was part of a 3P (Production, Preparation and Process) Workshop. In this workshop employees were given the opportunity to create and  design a new inpatient unit.

As you’ll see in this video, the process was very interactive and included a lot of time for exploration and play in the sense that we were continually asking ourselves, “What if…?”

Working with architects as well as multidisciplinary front-line staff, the team used all sorts of props and boxes in order to “design” and “build” a new unit. By using props that were malleable and easily moved we were able to quickly develop our ideas in a visible and creative way.

The safety and overall experience of the patient, family, and caregivers kept us focused and constantly challenged us to push our thinking. Check it out!
