Sheila Bosch, director of research at Gresham, Smith and Partners (GS&P), was honored in the researcher category.

As either the principal or co-principal investigator on projects for GS&P, Bosch has spent the last year publishing peer-reviewed articles based on a number of research projects, including investigating caregiver responses during assisted toileting in four different toilet configurations, and designing for families in the ICU. the article said.

Bosch also led a study at Florida Hospital Waterman in Tavares, Fla., that looked at the effects that a reorientation of where patient beds are located within the patient room had on noise, patient satisfaction scores, falls, nurse time spent in the patient rooms, and privacy-seeking behavior.
