I’ve been involved in the design of a lot of Emergency Departments. The saddest thing I see, is a bright and shiny new emergency department is opened and people realise really quickly, that it doesn’t work. I get asked to help fix it, but it’s a bit late at this point.

If you can, when you are designing a new department or refurbishing an old department, spend the time, to think about how each part will work and the relationship of each parts. If you can, spend a little bit more and hire an expert. You’d  be surprised at where you can find that expert. It may be someone amongst you.

Remember this, a poorly designed emergency department will be made to work, by the determination of its staff always, but at what cost to this staff? You will be amazed at how it affects staff satisfaction, patient satisfaction and can go as far as affecting staff recruitment and retention.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed
    to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    writing a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics
    as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email.
