Potty behind the nurse's station.
No need to punch out for breaks
Showers and lockers for nurses doing doubles, free meals, and 1/2 hour break between shifts
Rooms large enough to fit a lounge chair or two in for families staying with pts.
Rooms large enough to move around in, period
Design room so that equipment hookups are near the middle of the room, with the bathroom in BETWEEN the beds in a semi-private room. There would be a fold-out metal IV pole from the wall near the bathroom with an optional pump attachment piece to hang the IV's on and Pts could go to the potty without having to drag the pole with them.....
doctors would have to TYPE their orders and progress notes, which would print out separately at the station for the Unit Secretaries to put in, and and orders would simultaneously print at the pharmacy.
I like our tube system for saving steps transporting certain items to and from various parts of the hospital, so that would stay.
I also like the way the Pyxis is set up; keep that.
I do wish that we could have a little locked "IV supply box" with flushes, IV start kits, and alligator clips, gauze pads, and such right there at the bedside because nothing makes more of a mess than a pt-dc'd iv.
sorry this was so long, but i like interior design, so I've thought about this stuff for awhile....
