Abstract:

The volume contains appendices dealing with improvements to facilities for patient care. It presents without evaluation some novel practices used in European hospitals, which can be borne in mind in designing the prototype hospital. It also contains a study of the economic benefits associated with the use of patient rooms of various sizes. It describes a computer program called RELATE RElationship LAyout TEchnique, which aids in exploring the possibilities in facility layout and helps in arriving at good layout. This program is also compared with a number of other programs designed to do the same task. Finally, the volume shows the results of applying the innovations to the design process, presented in Volume 3 AD-722 973, to a hypothetical redesign of the March AFB Hospital.
