Facility Planning-Part III As stated earlier, during Week Four you will be required to complete a floor plan of the facility that you selected. Select a floor plan by using Google Search on a health care facility and save the template you have choosen. You are going to complete a design of a facility; you can develop a redesign of an area in your current work facility. Health care facilities are unique and have clearly defined characteristics based on the needs of the facility or population being served. Poor design can lead to staff and visitor/patient stress. In large facilities, inability to find a department can lead to frustrations and/or disorientation for older patients. Poor layout can also lead to staff inefficiencies or fines because of failure to meet regulatory requirements. Use the facility you chose in week one for this assignment. Indicate if this will be a new facility or the renovation of an existing structure. If it is a new or existing structure, also explain why the renovation or new facility is needed. 1.
