Educational Facilities in the Hospital for Teaching.
Green, Alan C.
Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, v128, article 2 p661-669 Sep 27, 1965
Planning and design criteria are established for educational facilities in VA hospitals, rendering them more effective for medical education. Rather than developing plans for prototype teaching hospitals, guidelines are presented which may be utilized to meet the needs of a particular situation. Three broad categories of facilities are identified--(1) those that form a part of the nursing unit, (2) those that are related directly to a floor, service, or department, and (3) those that have hospital-wide functions. Discussion is directed to the basic premises on which development of these facilities is based. Particular facility types, detailed program and functional requirements, design studies, and information as to location and relationship to other facilities, staffing and usage patterns, and special equipment and design considerations are developed for a number of facilities in each category. Floor plans, exemplifying the implementation of some of the guidelines are included. (FS)
