Description

This presentation will review revisions to the 2018 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of hospitals and outpatient facilities, focusing on the sections that address exam/treatment, procedure, operating, and imaging rooms. The 2018 Guidelines clarify the definition and application of requirements for hospital and outpatient facility room types where procedures take place based on the level of invasiveness and the perceived risk to the patient. The presenters will discuss a new imaging room classification system and revised operating room space requirements.

Learning Objectives:

  • Predict procedure room needs based on the procedures a healthcare organization plans to perform.
  • Explain the new imaging room classification system and how it can be applied to the design of imaging facilities.
  • Describe how the minimum operating room size can be determined for a project and when minimum requirements may not meet a client’s needs for the procedures to be performed.
  • Discuss the clearances needed to accommodate the provision of anesthesia and other staff in a procedure or operating room.
