The patient who comes to the hospital is stressed, worried and scared; the purpose of the hospital is to make the patient happy and comfortable. Healthy hospital architecture is not able to keep the only patient happy but also all the doctors, nurses and other staff. Hospital Architects is not the same as a residence they consider many technical aspects and large requirement and ensure that the spaces are properly connected useful and infection-free. Florence nightingale was the first lady who understands the basic principle that was Sanitation, infection control and control environment, the theory that was the evidence-based design that is used in the current scenario. Now in the designing phase of the architecture plan of hospital architects ensure that building spaces are easy to clean and infection-free and patients feel safe and give the best view from the ward. To control infection and manpower we don’t have to give more than three entrances the first one is the main entrance which people generally use, the second one is emergency and the third is for services.
Here we are going to explain step by step hospital design and planning.
Before start designing architecture planning of a hospital, you have to decide what services are you are going to provide like O.P.D., Diagnostics, and what services you are going to outsource like biomedical waste management, ct MRI, Cafeteria; on behalf of that built-up area required to plan a hospital vary between 600-1000sqft per bed. If you need a simple hospital you need a 600sqft built-up area per bed but you increase the requirement it will go up to 1000 sqft per bed. The mid-range and smooth running hospital required 800sqft per bed built-up area.
The three architectural aspects should be considered while selecting the site hospital building.
Its value varies 1.5-2 by this we can decide covered area or built-up area of that site by multiplying FSI into plot size. Larger FSI the number better because we can have more construction area.
Set back is the space between the boundary wall and the building. Setback decided by regulating authority it should be sufficient that fire brigade vehicle easily moves from there it’s about 6m-7m in most of the cases. This also helps to decide whether the plot is worth purchasing or not, it should not be too linear otherwise it will not good for hospital design architecture.
It’s about 50% of the plot area depends on regulating authority.
Before starting designing ensure that Land use permission is hospital or commercial of land if not contact regulating authority to change land use.
Fire safety aspect-
Enough space in the corridor and around the building
Check these points to ensure that their design satisfies the people living and functioning in the space they design.
The building should follow NBC and NABH, and local bylaws for planning Aerb guidelines for Xray design.
If your floor area is up to 3000sqft then 1car 1bike parking is required per 50sqm of covered area.
If your floor area is more than 3000 sqft then1 car and 1 bike parking are required per 75sqm of covered area.
Hospitals can easily catch fire due to oxygen running pipeline chemicals and equipment. Many hospital inpatients are disabled so maximum precaution should be followed in hospital architecture design & planning
The fire safety point is mentioned below.
Hospital designing is important to field in the designing and construction field with the help of nabh and jci we can design a good patient and user-centric hospital role of architects in hospitals is to prevent infection and help patients heal faster. An Architect responsibility is to design hospitals so that the public may get health care spaces infection-free, patient and user-centric.
