O
NE OF THE many ways The
Center for Health Design
works to make research and
practical tools accessible
is through the creation of
Topic Toolboxes. We've produced
more than a dozen
of these toolboxes on both
micro and macro issues, relating to everything
from technology to emergency department
throughput. Each toolbox contains a wide array
of resources to fit every learning style, such as
issue briefs, executive summaries, webinars, industry
expert interviews, and design strategies.
Within each toolbox, some of the resources are
open to all and then some are available only to
Affiliate+ members.
Creating easy access to the research and resources
that design and healthcare professionals
need to make informed decisions has never
been more important than during this last year.
Thanks to a partnership with industrial supply
company Grainger, all of the resources in the
Safety Toolbox are being made available to everyone
until the end of this year.
Poorly designed and operated healthcare environments
can contribute to harm associated
with adverse events such as healthcare-associated
infections, medication errors, injury from
patient handling, self-harm, violence against
others, security breaches, and falls. Designing
for safe environments is complex and requires a
systems approach. One needs to understand that
a combination of organizational factors, people,
and the environment must all be considered to
create safe environments. The Center's Safety
Toolbox looks at six risk components that impact
healthcare settings and provides design
considerations for the built environment that
may contribute to improved safety for users including
staff, patients, families, and visitors.
Inside the Safety Toolbox, users will find executive
summaries or background pieces on issues
such as understanding injury risk factors in
behavioral and mental health settings, preventing
injuries and increasing safety among older
adults, and incorporating a systems approach
to improving hand hygiene. Videos and interviews
that address patient safety from multiple
vantage points also are included. Two researchrelated
webinars look at security implications,
one related to psychiatric units and another related
to emergency department design. A set of
design strategies for reducing injury and harm in
behavioral and mental health settings offers insights
into site optimization, building envelope,
building layout, unit and room layout, interior
finishes, furnishings, and even technology. All
of our toolboxes can also be accessed from The
Center's homepage, either through the main
navigation bar under " Topics " or through the
" Moving Healthcare Forward " feature.
Closely tied to The Center's toolbox work is
our involvement with the Facility Guidelines
Institute's Emergency Conditions Guidelines.
Three Center employees sit on this guidelines
committee and have been working to addresses
the full range of emergencies and disasters that
could impact a healthcare facility. The document,
now available for download on the FGI
website (fgiguidelines.org/revision-process/
comment_period) is available for public comment
until June 30.
I'd also like to remind readers that the deadline
for submissions to the Healthcare Environment
Awards competition is July 9. The
program, a partnership with Healthcare Design
magazine, is open to built, in-process, or conceptual
projects. More information can be found on
The Center's website (healthdesign.org) under
the " What's New " section. I'm excited to see and
celebrate the 2021 class of award winners this
October in Cleveland at the Healthcare Design
Expo & Conference. 
