Medical and Dental Space Planning
A Comprehensive Guide to Design, Equipment, and Clinical Procedures
Published by John Wiley & Sons, 2002
Medical and Dental Space Planning is an indispensable guide to the myriad of details that make a medical or dental practice efficient and productive. The unique needs of more than 30 specialties, as well as primary care, are explained in the context of new technology and the many recent regulatory and compliance issues influencing design. Concepts for sports medicine facilities, ambulatory surgical centers, endoscopy suites, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging, clinical labs, breast care centers, and large clinics are also presented.
An "inside look" at what goes on in each specialist's office will familiarize readers with medical and dental procedures, how they are executed, and the types of equipment used. Technology has radically altered medical and dental practice: digital radiography, electronic medical records, and digital diagnostic instrumentation have major implications for facility design.
The information is organized to make it easy to use and practical. Program tables accompany each medical and dental specialty to help the designer compute the number and size of required rooms and total square footage for each practice. This handy reference can be used during interviews for a "reality check" on a client's program or during space planning. Other features, for example, help untangle the web of compliance and code issues governing office-based surgery.
Illustrated with more than 580 photographs and drawings, Medical and Dental Space Planning, Third Edition, is an essential tool for interior designers and architects, as well as practice management consultants, physicians, and dentists.
