When designing a children’s behavioral healthcare facility, dignity and safety must be balanced, according to an article on the Health Facilities Maintenance website.
The article said the most important questions are:
• What can the design do to make children feel comfortable?
• How can the design make parents feel confident they are making the right decision?
• What can design do to create the safest environment for effective treatment?
The ideal environment also considers how family members feel when they walk through the front door.
The quality of care and environmental design together can provide a sense of reassurance for parents.
