Opening February 1, 2015
The acute care patient room serves as more than the patient’s bedroom; it will also be the loved one’s hotel room, as well as the caregiver’s workroom. For this reason, the acute care patient rooms at our UCSF Women’s Specialty Hospital at Mission Bay are designed to be comfortable for our patients and their families alike. Our rooms will offer respite, connectivity, efficiency, an abundance of natural light, and garden views.
There is a dedicated family zone for the comfort and convenience of the patient’s family. This area includes carefully chosen amenities such as individualized lighting controls, a wireless Internet connection, lockable storage, and flexible furniture to accommodate overnight stays.
Every patient bathroom in our women’s specialty hospital is located at the headwall of the bed for easy patient movement from bed to bathroom. This bathroom is also equipped with a shower specifically designed without a curb to facilitate ease of movement and improve patient safety.
Every patient room is designed with infection control in mind: surfaces are smooth for easy cleaning, while coved flooring and minimal ledges offer additional infection control. A hand-washing sink is located just upon entrance to the acute care patient room to encourage use. The layout of the room is also set at an angle that optimizes window views and increases the family area.
