Campbell County Health employees, medical staff and members of the Patient
and Family Advisory Committee (PFAC) got a chance this week to see the
new rooms that will be constructed as part of the
Inpatient Room Replacement project at
Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming.
Medical Surgical and
Maternal Child rooms show the future locations of equipment and furnishings, electrical
outlets, sinks and cupboards. Patient care activities were thoroughly
tested to make sure the designs and features matched the work that caregivers do.
As a result of the simulations, some changes will be made in the final
design. For example, computer arms will be mounted on a different wall
so the nurse can sit at the patient’s eye level during an assessment.
Outlets will be moved so staff doesn’t have to reach behind the
bed to plug in equipment. These changes may seem small, but will help
caregivers spend more time at the bedside.
It will take about three weeks to get the changes incorporated in the plans
so construction can begin.
