Reimagining Childbirth Facilities: Experiencing the Outside - In
Healthy mother and baby is the top priority. AND, the experience of childbirth, including respecting a woman’s desires and choices within the process, is a significant priority. Where we can, let’s give patients a viable choice to interact in the type of “atmosphere” nature provides.
What if we "reimagined" the ICU alongside clinicians?
On the final day of the Healthcare Facilities Symposium (in Boston), Thursday September 19, we’ll kick off the next two-day “Reimagining Workshop” focusing on critical care spaces, presented by the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) & theSociety of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM).
