Hospital Room of the Future Debuts in New Jersey
Date:8/17/2010

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The hospital patient room of the future is on display – and in use – in Princeton, New Jersey, providing lessons that stand to benefit hospitals and patients nationwide.

Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS), which is building a new hospital in Plainsboro, NJ, to replace its downtown Princeton facility, has taken the extraordinary step of building a fully functioning replica of the new hospital's proposed patient room in its existing hospital.

Over the coming months, the newly-completed "Mock Patient Room" at University Medical Center at Princeton will be put to the test with actual patients to determine how the overall configuration of a hospital room – as well as countless details relating to the types and placement of materials, equipment and furnishings – can improve patient safety and comfort, health outcomes and the efficient delivery of healthcare.

PHCS will study how a room's design impacts events such as medication errors, hospital-acquired infections, patient slip-and-falls, as well as the satisfaction of patients, their families, hospital staff and physicians.

The answers will not only influence how rooms are built at the new hospital, University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro, but potentially prompt a rethinking of hospital room design nationally. Funded by a $2.8 million research grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Model Patient Room initiative is part of The Pebble Project, a program of the national Center for Healthcare Design that promotes research on how the physical spaces of a hospital can contribute to patients' healing and improved healthcare efficiency.

"This room is an interactive learning laboratory for testing, refining and discovering ideas that will benefit patients and improve the efficient delivery of healthcare," said Barry Rabner, president and CEO of Princeton HealthCare System. "What we learn from this projec
