Healthcare Design magazine recently named the winners of the second annual 'The HCD 10' competition. According to the magazine, the awards honor "an elite group of design and architecture professionals who represent the most exciting, inspirational, and influential healthcare work of the previous year."

Nominated by their peers, the winners were selected by the magazine editors from dozens of submissions in 10 categories.

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.
