The Ultimate Behavioral Health Design Guide by Room
1. Patient Rooms
Patient Room Design: Furnishings
From low- to high-acuity care needs, there are an array of options to help you create comfortable and safe spaces for patients to call their own. Patient room furniture and decor accents can elevate your behavioral healthcare settings.
When considering patient hospital room furniture in low-acuity settings, choose from durable laminate and wood veneer casegoods that offer a welcoming residential feel to help make patients feel at home. Details like secure drawers that cannot fully be pulled and rounded edges add subtle safety.
Patient Room Design: Artwork
To continue enhancing patient experiences, add finishing touches like artwork or leave space for patients to bring items from home.
In mid-acuity settings, we can help you select hospital furnishings with a residential feel that offer additional safety features, including ligature considerations and the ability to easily secure items to the wall or floor.
For your highest acuity settings, choose from our rotationally molded healthcare furniture collection featuring durable, heavy designs that cannot be easily lifted and offer heightened stability and safety for this patient population.
Keep patient rooms at the ideal temperatures with the right PTAC units. Find the ideal features to meet your budget with Direct Supply branded PTACs, plus a large selection of national brands.
Simple and clean designs can help optimize patient safety while providing a homelike look for ideal comfort.
