Bad Hospital Design is Making Us Sicker - SHIFT Daily News

Research pioneered by Roger Ulrich, now a professor of architecture at the Center for Healthcare Building Research at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, suggests that when it comes to recovering from illness, the more nature the better.
But too often patients and physicians find themselves cooped up in dim rooms and sterile hallways with little access to natural light or views of nature: too much concrete, not enough jungle. Dr. Ulrich's early work explored how patients recovered after gallbladder surgery based on whether they were assigned to a room with a window that had a view of nature or of a brick wall. The study, now one of the most widely cited in the hospital design literature, found that patients looking out at trees had shorter hospital stays and took fewer pain medications than those viewing a brick wall. Dr. Ulrich said the idea for the study came from his personal experience with illness. "As a teenager, I had some serious illnesses that forced me to spend time at home in bed," he told me. "My window was my compass of stability. "Hospitals can be dangerous and unpleasant," Dr. Ulrich said.

In the same year, Roger Ulrich, now visiting professor of architecture at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, studied the impact of patient's views from their hospital beds on recovery rates.
Ulrich found recovery rates for patients with views of nature were on average 8.5 per cent faster than for those faced with blank walls; patients also required 22% less pain-relieving medication.

In 1984, Roger Ulrich, now a professor of architecture at the Center for Healthcare Building Research at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, published an article in the journal Science that found a correlation between the speed of recovery of patients in a suburban Pennsylvania hospital with a view of nature compared with patients with a view of a brick wall.
He showed that patients with the better view recovered more quickly, had fewer negative comments about nurses and took fewer potent analgesics than those with the brick wall view.
