2019 PDC Summit


Applying a Human-Centered Lens to Safety in Behavioral Health


Mar 19, 2019 8:15am ‐ Mar 19, 2019 9:15am


Credits: None available.

Description

This case study of a redesign of a maximum security mental health hospital examines the use of a human-centered perspective to evaluate care delivery and security. The study includes the intake process; how daylighting, noise, and color can create a de-escalated environment; and the use of phasing to allow operations to continue during construction. By envisioning the whole environment to promote therapy and staff empowerment, the hospital has created a safer environment for better care delivery and patient recovery.

Learning Objective:

1.) Describe a human-centered approach to behavioral/mental health environmental assessment.

2.) Explain the relationship between a therapeutic and safe environment.

3.) Identify environmental elements that can reduce patient stress and adversarial interactions.

4.) Illustrate how phasing and coordination can allow a hospital to maintain operations while improving safety and security.
