"Our research shows that a change as simple as adding flowers and plants can be important in the most meaningful way to businesses in the modern economy," said Dr. Roger Ulrich, lead researcher on the project.
"We know the importance of learning, for example, how natural surroundings affect drivers, school children, and hospital patients," said Ulrich, who has conducted extensive research on the effects of environments on psychological well-being, stress and health. "To businesses, it should be equally as important to understand what features can improve performance at work and make employees more productive."
Background The Impact of Flowers and Plants on Workplace Productivity Study was conducted over eight months by Roger Ulrich, Ph.D., Behavioral Scientist, Director of the Center for Health Systems and Design, Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

Recent studies demonstrate that views to nature and access to daylight can help physical healing.

Dr Roger Ulrich, a behavioural scientist and Director of the Centre for Health Systems and Design at Texas A+M University, has contributed significantly our understanding of Evidence Based Design (EBD).

Professor Ulrich has conducted extensive research on healthcare facilities and their effect on medical outcomes. His 1984 study provided scientific proof that having views to nature from the hospital bedroom can reduce the length of stay and pain relief in a group of post-surgery patients.

Biophilia is the term used to describe the need that humans have for contact with the natural environment.

If architectural design using evidence-based principles can trim the length of stay and the need for pain-relief pharmaceuticals, cost savings over conventional hospitals would be very substantial.

Dr Ulrich believes that over the life of the facility, operational costs are reduced if the hospital is designed according to EBD principles. (Bates Smart)

"And then off you go, into this dreary, unattractive maze" that is often entirely cut off from the natural comforts of the outside world, said Dr. Roger Ulrich, director of the Center for Health Systems and Design at Texas A&M University.
The Discomfort of Noise
Noise levels may be more integral to effective care than hospitals realize.Television sets blare, moans issue from the room next door, nurses gossip in the corridor.
In a recent study, Dr. Ulrich and researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden monitored the health of 94 heart disease patients.
"Not to mention that when it's quieter, you can actually hear and understand what staff members are saying to you," Dr. Ulrich said.
