Are you at a hospital that is planning new construction or renovation? Are you a vendor with a product or service that's used at the point of care in hospitals? You should check out the latest survey from The Center for Healthcare Design, the Effect of Environmental Design on Reducing Nursing Errors in Acute Care Settings. You can get your copy for $35.

With the U.S. market in the midst of a hospital building boom, the environment at the point of care is changing. Variable acuity units (aka, universal beds or rooms), distributed nursing units, and other big changes are being adopted now. These changes will impact market requirements for both medical devices and health care IT.

You have been warned.
