ISOLATION PRECAUTIONS SERVICE QUALITY IMPROVEMENT STUDY
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRVINE HEALTH Project Understanding
aylor Design partnered with UC Irvine Health and the Department of Patent Satisfaction as coresearches to discover the causes and potential remedies to low patient satisfaction scores for those patients admitted to isolation/precautions situations (i.e., settings in which patents may have highly communicable infections that require medical precautions to prevent the spread of infection). Funded by a grant from the University, Taylor Design led the research effort in concert with UCI Health to study communications, processes, and interactions within isolation settings.
User research included interviews and focus groups with key staff, participant observations, participant feedback collection, data collection on observed patient/provider interactions, and analysis of patient satisfaction scores. The findings from this research resulted in actionable insights and recommendations.
This collaborative study resulted in a joint report that points the way to next research steps in improving patient satisfaction.
“ MANY PATIENTS
DIDN’T KNOW THEY WERE IN ISOLATION AND THOUGHT, ‘EVERYONE WEARS THOSE GOWNS; IT’S NOT JUST FOR MY ROOM.
Project goals included understanding the current state in terms of patient satisfaction in isolation conditions, developing insights as to what sort of variables are most critical in the determination of patient satisfaction, and recommending areas for additional study or implementation to improve satisfaction scores.

MAIN OPERATING ROOM / PACU RENOVATION HOAG HOSPITAL
Details 7,000 SF | One Level Newport Beach, CA Completed: 2018 Construction Cost: $5M
he design objective for this project was to add two Operating Rooms and replace an existing Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) constructed in 1974 with a new, compliant PACU with 12 patient care stations. The project consisted of approximately 7,000 square feet of interior remodel space on the hospital’s first floor, a new air handling unit, Data Room and associated utilities on the second floor mechanical/electrical space(s). It included a remodel of existing lockers, lounge and surgical holding areas (not currently in use) to create a PACU, remodel of existing “Recovery” PACU to create two new operating rooms and sterile storage room and a new AHU on existing second floor.
CT SCANNER REPLACEMENT
STANFORD BLAKE WILBUR CLINIC
aylor Design provided architecture and interior services to replace a 14 year-old CT within the basement of Stanfordâ€™s Blake Wilbur Clinic. With the enlargement of the room to accommodate the Siemens Edge CT, provisions were made to consolidate zoning for patients and staff that allowed for better use of the room. To improve the patient experience, Taylor Design suggested a full-height image be placed opposite the entry doors to increase the volume of the room. To keep costs low, the image was screened onto a highimpact wall covering.
Details 550 SF | One Level Palo Alto, CA Completed: 2015 Construction Cost: $550,000
A full cosmetic upgrade was also provided and inspired by the building’s Zen theme. Finishes included foot lighting at “floating” cabinetry, an intersection of full-height wood cabinet and wood soffit, new dimmable LED lighting, and quartz counter-tops..

CARDIOVASCULAR INTENSIVE CARE UNIT HOAG HOSPITAL
Details 16,812 SF | One Level Newport Beach, CA Completed: 2007 Construction Cost: $9.1M
his his renovation involved converting a 33-bed nursing unit into two 10-bed critical care units for cardiovascular patients. The existing layout was based on patient-room design from 1971, which did not transfer well to modern critical care needs, necessitating a complete redesign of the space. To improve staff efficiencies, the units are connected along a common interior corridor which allows them to share resources. Each unit has one centralized and multiple satellite nurse stations for enhanced personalized care. The critical care units draw on the healing elements of nature, with colors and materials influenced by the sea and coastal bluffs outside, as well as cast-glass textures and specialized lighting elements. Sea-glass fixtures modulate between bright daylighting and low-level soft illumination to reduce intrusive lighting in patient rooms.
INFUSION CENTER AND MULTISPECIALTY CLINIC UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO HEALTH SYSTEM
Details 21,960 SF | Three Levels Encinitas, CA Completed: 2013 Construction Cost: $2.6M
ur initial work for this project began as a simple floor upgrade, then ended with an extended scope that included a full infusion space remodel, break room remodel, USP 797 Pharmacy/Clean Room, Retail Pharmacy, ADA upgrades, code/ licensing upgrades to existing exam rooms, toilet rooms, nurse stations, CT scanner, and an existing Linear Accelerator. The design team received project reports prepared by the facility establishing the second floor of the OSHPD 3 conversion as an “I” occupancy.
Taylor Design investigated the intended use of the space to justify the proposed “I” occupancy and yielded a different result. After careful code analysis and research, we clarified the occupancy as a “B” outpatient instead of the more costly “I” outpatient, eliminating unnecessary budget expenditures. Additionally, mechanical upgrades were maximized to incorporate existing systems, avoiding the costly replacement of several air handler units and construction phasing concerns.
OASIS MEDICAL OFFICES HEMATOLOGY/ ONCOLOGY CLINIC KAISER PERMANENTE
s Campus Architect for the Kaiser Permanente Panorama City / Antelope Valley service area, Taylor Design was tasked with the conversion of the Oasis CafĂŠ into a Hematology-Oncology Outpatient Clinic. Special care was given to frame exterior views to provide relief for patients undergoing treatment in the infusion bays, and in general, the design promoted user inter-connection with nature with the use of these views and the use of courtyards to give people the chance to experience the outdoors within the confines of the building. The new clinic includes a Chemotherapy/Infusion Center, Oncology Pharmacy, Support Spaces and Staff Amenities, Patio and Outdoor Coffee Kiosk.

Hoag has developed a community based approach where patients have options to select the space they occupy while receiving cancer treatment. The goal of the
space was to build a platform for patients to form friendships and create personal support networks. Private bays were provided for those needing individual treatment, as well as semi-private bays to allow a connection from one patient to another. The largest open space provided drew inspiration from the concept of a living room; providing a space where comfort was a key aspect as opposed to a clinical setting.
PATTY & GEORGE HOAG CANCER CENTER HOAG HOSPITAL
he Patty & George Hoag Cancer Center in Newport Beach offers comprehensive cancer care for the community and a positive patient experience from the moment patients walk through the door. Through careful analysis, we learned that users preferred clear, open spaces to easily access medical associates. As a result, we removed partitions and rearranged furniture to open up the space.
On the second floor, which houses a variety of uses, we changed seating types and groupings, and incorporated low planter walls and free-standing barriers to maintain a level of privacy where needed. Because the center would be fully operational during renovation, demolition and architectural changes were kept to a minimum, and much of the work was scheduled at night.

SHARP METROPOLITAN MEDICAL CAMPUS Project Understanding
aylor Design worked with McCarthy Building Companies and the Sharp Healthcare leadership team to create a Master Plan update for the Sharp Metropolitan Medical Campus (SMMC). The team was tasked with making a preliminary determination of space requirements, space relationships and circulation and identifying any major unresolved programming issues and providing options for resolution. The team facilitated user meetings with key stakeholders to better understand the entire campus, the budget and the future goals of the institution. An onsite â€œScoring Workshopâ€? used 10 different score cards to rate each building, which enabled the design team and key users to identify buildings that required improvement and buildings that needed to be demolished.
Guided by this new information, Taylor Design advised Sharp SMMC where to focus attention first, how to meet the seismic regulatory deadlines, and how to best use the existing structures. Taylor Design also gave recommendations on how to account for growth in patient beds and support spaces, improve pedestrian and traffic flows, create a sense of place and make circulation as intuitive and stress-free as possible, while improving the aesthetics of the selected spaces and building fronts.

ince 1980, Taylor Design has completed over 100 projects at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, CA. We were retained in a long term master project implementation plan in 1994. This master plan focused on steps to seismic compliance by utilizing swing space generated by the first in a series of developments. The project goals were to identify and document both the structural and non-structural components distributed throughout the 480,000 SF hospital campus. The scope of work included meeting with the users, assessing the potential reuse of the space, preparing detailed cost and schedule data and making a project justification narrative.
Taylor Design organized and led a multidisciplinary team of design and engineering professionals, and developed an efficient methodology to survey, document, and assess the campus inventory of buildings and infrastructure systems. Critical to the success of the assessment included identifying building standards and code deficiencies, and also identifying and revitalizing the capabilities of hospital buildings and systems and for an integrated and comprehensive healthcare campus which would meet the demands of a rapidly changing healthcare delivery environment. Our comprehensive approach to the assessment process led Hoag Hospital to retain the A/E Team to continue with Professional Services for the development and implementation of a Campus Development Master Plan.
