ICU RENOVATION St. David’s Georgetown Hospital added to their ICU capability by renovating a second floor of the admin building and added architecture to the adjacent roof. The renovation now provides 14 new ICU beds, including 2 isolation rooms, support services, and family areas. Special attention was placed on was the Staff, Patient and Family experience and the desire to make this ICU a unique environment that would foster healing, encourage family interaction and increase staff efficiency/satisfaction. Consideration was given to flexible headwall system using ceiling mounted booms, integrated support facilities, incorporation of bariatric lifts, visibility from the Nurse Station, and devoted family space and wardrobe placement.

Application of patient centered care and/or evidence based design principles included initial collection of quantitative data from patient questionnaires, feedback surveys, qualitative data from focus groups and individual leadership and departmental interviews. This information was collected by St. Davidâ€™s and disseminated to the Design Team for consideration when developing project goals, design interventions and patient centered design concepts. An interdisciplinary team participated from planning to physical mock-ups and allowed for real time adjustments.

Other considerations in design, included access to natural light, durability/compatibility of materials, ease of access and wayfinding mechanisms to support navigation within the unit. Evidence based strategies and design concepts were incorporated along with best practices for items including placement of hand wash sinks, introduction of natural light, headwall flexibility and decentralized staff touchdown and centralized staff huddle areas. This ICU continues to be a shining light in the facility and acts as a testament to the success of the interventions established during early stages of design.
