MRI/ CT Scan/ Cath Lab / X-Ray Layout Design
Fit for Purpose – Patient Flow – usability.
The layout of a room and its surrounding areas will show how the equipment will fit in the space available. This also needs to be fit for purpose and be comfortable to use. Key here is to not only show the equipment will fit in the space provided but also to show ancillary items, all Group 1,2&3 equipment, furniture, trolley, s etc that will be in the space at all times. Patient flow and access for beds and trolleys is very important. It has to be comfortable for staff to use day in, day out, and provide a sensible room setup for the duration of the service and equipment lifecycle.
