About this session:

Behavioral health and substance abuse are on the rise. Does your facility have adequate protection for patients and staff? To proactively and successfully manage behavioral health facilities, facility professionals need a better understanding of how patients view and experience their environments. Seeing the facility from the patient’s point of view and learning how patients deconstruct the space to find opportunities to harm themselves or staff empowers facility managers to mitigate risk and protect occupants. During our panel discussion, we will explore methods for analyzing the effectiveness of facility design for patient and staff safety, and we will discuss how to improve or fix problem areas. Using products designed to be durable and customizable, as well as easy to clean and maintain.

1. Learn how to see your facility from the patient’s perspective (what do they see/look for?) in order to identify and prevent potential problem areas.
2. Understand the negative and positive impact interior design choices have on the patient experience, and how to make the right choices that benefit everyone.
3. Learn how to protect the integrity of your facility by creating safe environments for staff and patients to avoid code violations and lawsuits.
4. Learn what products are right for your facility. Come away with an awareness for the various product options on the market, their strengths and weaknesses.
