Design Considerations for Behavioral Health - FREE


Standards and guidelines such as the FGI Design Guide for the Built Environment of Behavioral Health Facilities are excellent resources to illuminate best practices. As part of a robust and comprehensive patient-safety risk assessment in pre-project planning, it is important to weigh the level of precaution necessary to reduce the risk of patient self-harm. The design challenge faced is in balancing patient safety without negatively impacting the creation of a therapeutic environment that is conducive to patient healing and recovery. This white paper seeks to provide some illumination to designers on the issues of patient dignity, safety and durable interior products.
