Knoll's research article Destination Bedside: A Design Research Project for Effective Nursing and Patient Spaces offers conclusions and recommendations based on a study in which Knoll and the Healthcare research team from design firm, HOK, jointly investigated the impact of medical-surgical inpatient unit design on quality of patient-centered care.
This article is an excellent resource for architectural and design firms and for the healthcare community.
A more detailed review of this research, written by Dr. Nicholas Watkins of HOK, will be the May cover story for the prestigious Journal of Nursing Administration. Congratulations to Dr. Mike O’Neill and Dr. Watkins on completing this research.
