CCMH inpatient room redesign details

CCMH inpatient room redesign details

Check out some more details on the proposed Campbell County Memorial Hospital inpatient room redesign with renderings of what the rooms will look like.

CCMH inpatient room redesign details

Rooms will be almost 20 percent larger than the current rooms, expanding from 276 sq. ft. to 327 sq. ft. to accommodate visitors and family members. A total of 33 new patient rooms in Medical Surgical, ICU and Maternal Child. Each room will contain dedicated seating and sleeping space for families and room for equipment and staff to provide care.

Each room will be visible from a bedside nursing station located right outside the room to reduce noise from the hallway and the opening and closing of doors. Nurses chose to have nursing stations designed in the hallways between two sets of rooms so they can monitor patients more efficiently without walking long distances to check on patients.

The overhead view shows the sightline from the patient’s bed to the bathroom. Research shows that falls are greatly reduced when the patient can see the bathroom from their bed. Nightlights will be placed around the rooms and help point the way to the bathroom. Bathrooms will be large enough to easily accommodate a wheelchair with a shower that doesn’t have a lip or step to enter and non-slip tiles. Sinks were not required in bathrooms when the hospital was built over 35 years ago, so sinks will now be installed in each bathroom.

The new design has a patient supply closet in each room that can be restocked from the hallway so patients aren’t bothered by the noise or disrupted when trying to rest. It will literally save nurses hundreds of miles of extra steps each year, and give them more time to spend with their patients.

This map shows the location of each section of patient rooms on the second floor of Campbell County Memorial Hospital. ICU will be located in the current Labor and Delivery area, Medical Surgical rooms will start in the current Maternal Child unit and flow into the space above the main lobby, and Maternal Child rooms will be located above the main lobby. The design also calls for “touchdown spaces” in each area, places for families to gather away from the waiting rooms and still be close to the patient’s room.
